Awujale of Ijebuland Autobiography Saga; Obasanjo Reactions and Considerations

How Obasanjo Reacted to Awujale Authobiography

By calibre and status in Nigerian heritage (Yoruba race inclusive), the duo "Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Oba Sikiru Adetona" in question are nothing but a god in their calling within and outside their jurisdiction (more credit to Obasanjo). I doff my hat Sirs for your quota in the state of Nigeria Today. Meanwhile, their historiography has documented by Wikipedia is full of jawdropping, interesting lifetime experiences across all walks of life within and outside Nigeria.

Lately, the Awujale Autobiography - an enclosure of lifetime events or moments with important dignitaries - published in 2010 by Mosuro Publishers became the talk of the town. Worthy of mentioning amongst the issue raised revolves around the then President of Nigeria - Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Mike Adenuga and host of others. As published in the except pp. 187-195 of the book, Obasanjo was polished as a leader who established Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to trail and hunt down his enemies - Mike Adenuga as at that time.

The autobiography further revealed Obasanjo was more or less a failure to Nigerian government during his 8years reign as the head of state and head of government. It was stipulated there that Obasanjo couldn't nail down the cankerworm "corruption" while the epileptic state of the nation's electricity lingers on regardless of his two terms in office. Obviously, his royal majesty Oba Adetona has been the traditional ruler of Ijebu land (Ijebu Ode his residence) prior that time achieving tremendous growth and development in the area. Am quite sure, Ijebu people has a negative feeling towards this.

In light of these, Obasanjo reactions via letter rebuffed the accusations stated in the Autobiography with a detailed explanation as if the scenario years back remains fresh in his memory. Obasanjo claimed the inclusion of that section of the book was to blackmail him while he claimed never intruding into Nuhu Rihadu affairs as the then EFCC boss. As for Mike Adenuga saga, Obasanjo noted he never had any issue with him. 

Nevertheless, the godfathers have made their points with an element of truth still hidden - whichever way, it is quite essential to make huge considerations about their standpoint. On a realistic note, Nigerian leaders has proven to be an expert in defending self (when the evidences against them are visible) talkless of an issue that lives without any trace. This is agreed upon based on the level at which they reply to accusations (via letter) which often leaves the general masses with great confusion as to who is right or wrong.
