Obasanjo Reveals Why He Didn’t Snub President Buhari At 30th AU Summit

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed that he greeted President Muhammadu Buhari at the African Union (AU) Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, because of his upbringing. 




Obasanjo explained that he had gone round to greet other African leaders present at the Summit and decided to also shake hands with Buhari.

He stated this in Abeokuta, Ogun state, yesterday, while speaking with reporters after registering his membership of the Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM), at the Secretariat of the Ogun State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).


He said: I wonder why some Nigerians were worried why I had to pay respect to the Nigerian President. That’s my own upbringing as a well-born and bred Yoruba boy. That doesn’t mean that what I have said about the President, which I did not say out of bitterness and hatred has been thrown away. It is clear that the President has performed, in some areas, good enough, in other areas not good and a proper advice which he may take and may not take. I didn’t do that out of malice or bad belle. I did it out of my respect for that office and my interest and I hope in your interest and the interest of Buhari in Nigeria.


I went to him just before the beginning of the AU summit. I had gone round some few other Presidents and should I ignore him? So, I went to my President, greeted him and we joked before Gen. Salami said we should have a group photograph.

*Hmmm Obasanjo is very smart and sly...playing into everyone's good books and still doing what has to be done and saying what needs to be said....

  5. OBJ did what he has to do @ the summit, as he said it would be quite disrespectful ignoring the president of his country & that Salami knew was he was doing when he asked for a group pic. ..
