    Nuhu Ribadu and Thiefnubu now fraternize? What is Alli Modu Sheriff doing there? We know he is a stooge of the APC to destabilize the PDP. How did Obasanjo get the funding for this Library? A gathering of men without integrity.. How can Nigeria balance with these band of thieves?

    PS: Consultations are ongoing as to who ur next VP will be. The brief man is very desperate. Watch this space.

      “Nuhu Ribadu and Thiefnubu now fraternize?”
      Their common enemy is Atiku. Ribadu is back in APC.
      “In politics there are no permanent friends or enemies, only permanent interests.”

      Funding – the donors were mentioned a few years ago. The same old men he empowered while in power; bank MDs, industrialists/captains of industry etc. Some of them are shown here.
      Ogun state as well..

      “PS: Consultations are ongoing as to who ur next VP will be. The brief man is very desperate. Watch this space.”
      I thought you had previously said he should take over quickly? I have always said he’s in cahoots with BAT. Who will they choose? A Northerner like Masari or Tambuwal.

      Una don come oh. Make una allow Mallam Buhari to answer God bull horn in God’s own time before una destroy the opportunity for Osibanjo to right the wrongs. If you guys keep talking, the cabal will make life difficult for Osibanjo. Dont you like the few days of solace and progress? Abegnu, just contain the glee or whatever emotion it is and let sleeping dogs lie.

      I want to criticize Baba but I will let it go. he is the first president of Nigeria or even political office holder to think of putting something so profound in his home state. that is a tourist attraction that will bring people to Ogun state, and will at least disseminate information (correct or wrong) that people would otherwise not have access to. For that alone, whether it was built with state money, stolen money or donor funds, I salute you.

      I agree. This is a good contribution. Obj knows how to gather his enemies to celebrate with him. He plays his card well. I respect him. He is energetic for 80 too Congrats to him
      My husband is from Ogun, I will love to visit the library.

    Obasanjo is strong for 80. He has his flaws but I will always respect him for his positive contribution to the politics of Nigeria.
    But I can’t help but feel angry when I see these old men, leaders who failed Nigeria and brought the country to the shambles.

    In the political boat, OBJ gets a pass from me.

    I bet he cracked some jokes and that’s why they all had “pepsodent” smiles in that picture.

    @Fasholas lover, bloody hypocrite. At least the thief built the library for those without shoes. Have you seen any gathering of politicians with integrity in Nigeria before. Tell the remaining people with stolen funds sorry ‘gift’ lol to remember to give back too. As for madman, how is your state governor performing? Abi na only Fashola waka come. I don’t like this particular thief trust me, cos he follow ruin this country but applaud good thing when you see one.

      Eeewoooo. @Tee, l am a hypocrite becos? Are you well at all? It is okay to steal and bully people to donate to your personal business so long as it benefits the people of Ogun state? And you lot are quick to catch thieves who steal yams. In short, you are a thief.

    African leaders are such let downs, Obasanjo included… Look at the gathering and you pretty much can see most of the architects of the issues plaguing Nigeria..

    From the pictures it seems that the building houses some Nigerian history, identity and story which I should commendable. However I would have loved i for it is a Nigerian State project. Shame we don’t have this international standard edifice built and throughly managed by government.

  8. Sorry for yourself

    Obasanjo is a smart man. I admire how Yorubas think. This library is a positive thing, I don’t even care if it’s government money. If the stolen money can be used for great contribution like build advanced private hospitals, companies to create more jobs, schools etc it will be good.
    But no they just steal keep it buy houses and cars the backward African mentality.

    Great feat, OBJ did well. It does not mean he own it. You can’t make profit form such, its just a selfless service to humanity that will be passed on to the state.

    The building surely is magnificent. ( Because of Nigeria’s lack of maintenance culture ) I certainly hope and pray that his children, grandchildren and his foundation will continue to maintain this building long after he is gone. Time shall tell. A word is enough for the wise. I ‘ m just saying.
