Coronavirus Stalls Obasanjo’s 83rd Birthday Event



Former President Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, said the outbreak of Coronavirus stalled his programmes to mark his 83rd birthday anniversary. 

Obasanjo made the comments on Thursday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital while addressing friends and well-wishers who came to celebrate with him. 

The former President said, “When we were thinking of this celebration, two programmes came to mind.

“One was to see what Asian countries have done to make their continent become what they have become, for instance, Malaysia, which was worse than us when we got independence; South Korea which was below us and Vietnam which was plunged into series of wars.

“We would have spent the day before yesterday and yesterday to really consider how the Asians have risen to greatness and what lessons we could learn from them but because of Coronavirus, that programme was shelved. Some of them were not able to make it.”
