Obasanjo Acolytes Plan Two-Day Birthday Celebration

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo
By SaharaReporters, New York

Acolytes of former Nigeria President, Olusegun Obasanjo, plan a two-day long birthday celebration for him despite not knowing his real date of birth.,The group will hold a series of events on January 18 and 19, at his presidential library in Abeokuta in Ogun State.

As part of the event, former Ghana president John Kuffour will deliver a public lecture entitled, "Obasanjo in the eyes of history." the former president is also working hard to launch another international foundation to rival that of former US president Bill Clinton to revamp his badly battered international repution after he failed in a bid to stand for third term in office in 2006.

President Goodluck Jonathan is recorded on the invitation card as the "guest of honor" in an event that is being viewed as a political gathering of Obasanjo loyalists, but sources close to Obasanjo said Jonathan has not responded to the invitation.  Vice President Namadi Sambo has indicated he will attend.  

Bankrolling the event include some state governors, such as Delta State governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, Akwa Ibom governor, Godswill Akpabio, Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido, and several others.

The former Nigerian leader had recently engaged in public spat against Mr. Jonathan over his plans to run for office again, publicly criticizing him for poor governance and incompetence.

The celebrations also come at a time Obasanjo’s reputation has taken considerable hammering.  Following Ghana’s recent presidential election, he was roundly criticized and disowned by the Economic Commission of West African States (ECOWAS), for which he had served as head of an election observer mission, for his anti-democracy activities.

I've read several excellent stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much effort you place to create any such magnificent informative website.|

@ MONDAY THE PRAISE SINGER!!!!

Monday the praise singer, you said you have been to you and saw wonders. It may be you also went to Ewet Housing Estate and Shelter Afric Housing Estate all in Uyo Town. All new houses that you see there please find out who owns 90%. The remaining 10% will be owned by Akpabio's commissioners. Just go and find out.

Find out also how much he has collected for the state from the Federation Account since he became governor in May 2007. Then if you will continue to say that Akpabio is the best thing that has happened to the Akwa Ibom people, then pray for God to send somebody like Akpabio to be the governor of your state wherever you come from.

That your governor will commit all the atrocities that Akpabio is committing IJN. Amen.

Baba I thot ur bday is in

Baba I thot ur bday is in March?

Goliath

How many cheers do we now give to the GOLIATH of Nigerian politics?

YOU CAN'T DOUBT WHAT YOU SEE

FACTS DON'T LIE. AKPABIO HAS DONE WELL MORE THAN ANY PRESENT GOVERNOR THAT IS A FACT. THE AKWA IBOM I LEFT IN 2001 and the present one is a huge improvement. Chuks settle your scores with Akpabio but don't come here to lie. From your name if truly it's yours you have not visited AKWA IBOM . Speak with facts and not ear say. I don't know this Akpabio before neither have I gained anything directly from him God is my witness. But from physical evidences on ground I give this man credit. HE MAY NOT BE AN ANGEL WHICH YOU ARE NOT TOO.

GOD BLESS BABA

Great ICON General Olusegun Obasanjo. Indeed you have done your best for Nigeria. Continuue to give your elderly advice to your successors. Happy birthday to you Sir.

Ota Monster Celebrating Life, Not Birthday!

Since no one knows when the monster came into being, a more appropriate caption would've said : Ota Monster - Acolytes Plan Celebrating His Life.

With his stolen wealth he can afford DNA/Carbon Dating to establish his true age, instead of arbitrarily celebrating a "birthday" he chose for himself. As usual, only the ugly monster would "choose" his own birthday and gather fools to celebrate with him. I hope his Mansion collapses on them this time, not just fire.

Obasanjo achieved nothing and is a relic Nigerians need no more of. The fossil of Egbaland needs to lie low for a moment as he's often in the news for negetive reasons. I expect more bad news from this planned gathering.

Thank God for photoshop, even monsters can smile and look good!

leff'em alone !

the event will look like wake-keeping since Baby will fall asleep soon into the event.

Prof-of-penkele-insomniae

@DERI D EMPTY HEAR, THATS CULTIST AKPABIO FOR YOU! WATCH EVENTS.

Obasanjo Made Me Governor.........Godswill Akpabio the 419/Cultist AKS governor.

Akpabio said that much during Obasanjo's last year birthday celebration at the Civic Center, Victoria Island. Akpabio has so much money to play with while the owners of the money are dying of hunger.

The poverty rate in Akwa Ibom is the highest in Nigeria. Let anybody go there and feel abject poverty.

When the thieving senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria met in Uyo last year, Akpabio gave each and everyone of them,€20,000. And the thieves ( Senators ) were more than 200 in number. They were serving and some past senators.

Akpabio is a disaster. His end shall be disastrous too, because NOBODY plays God!

Truth

If Obasanjo used his tooth to cut kolanut for you, you may not eat it, but if he gives you advise or profer solution to issues please take it. Dont throw away the baby with the bad water.

thank you.

Truth

Jamboree!

As you celebrate your birthday, kindly prevail on those who want to turn it into another political jamboree at a time when the citizens of this great nation you ruled thrice are wallowing in abject poverty. Your biggest birthday gift to Nigerians will probably be turning back your Otta farm & other such material acquisition to the government, for the betterment of Nigerians!

PRAISE BABA WHEN HE IS ALIVE

Happy birthday Baba. It's high time that people of Naija start appreciating heros when they are alive.
Baba really tried for Nigeria as a country but the areas will not be mentioned until after his demise, It is unfair Nigerians are found of condemning leaders. Baba Weldone, You are too much.

@Michael Ijere

Happy Birthday to The Pilar of Aso Rock

All i've to tell you is that, ''One Nigeria'' you hear always is not just an ordinary statement but ''One Love''. So, in effect, stop all this critisism and act like a grandfather.

Delta state Governor again.

I pay tax to Delta state, no roads, no security, kidnappers and armed robbers are having a field day, teachers are owed salaries...........Uduaghan, you will end up in jail. In 2013, any Governor who mismanaged my tax I pay to Delta state will suffer for life. Him and his family member will beg for help.

OBJ THE ENIGMA-HE SHOULD BE HIDING IN SHAME NOT CELEBRATING

First of all the date and place of birth is shrouded in controversy,there have been unproven assertions that he has an Igbo father but all that dont matter.
The important thing is that the man OBJ has been one of the elephants in Nigeria's China shop,his PDP has for more than a decade presided over monumental corruption,a highly destructive and rudderless political organisation whose major fixation is on the cynical and mindless looting of Nigeria's commonwealth.
Obj also has a history of disregard for human rights from the invasion of Fela Kuti's Kalakuta Shrine to the Odi and Zakibiam massacres all on his watch.OBJ however is still confusing the international community by claiming to be a "democrat" despite the fact that his actions at home especially during elections leaves much to the desire.OBJ will be celebrating the successful destruction and impoverishment of our nation with his cronies not with Nigerians.

How has Jonathan performed,

How has Jonathan performed, no electricity, no jobs, people hustling for water at least do ne thing lets Beg for the rest from other administration

@Michael Ijere

Bro,
You need to change your meds. I'm not sure what planet you live in.

Mr. OBJ! WHAT IS THERE TO PARTY ABOUT IN NIGERIA???

Nonsense... Instead of having sober reflections at the warning God has giving, he is partying. Second, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years even decades are shorter!!! Each passing moment is a "MINUS" for the living... a "LOST"- dont we get it? Time for patying is over! What do we say we did on earth when asked? Baba OBJ, your time for patying is over abeg!!! Money waste! People are hungry! People are sick! People lack homes! Etc! etc!! Etc!!! So much pain & sorrow! So many killings!! What is there to party about in Nigeria?
