Oba of Lagos: Obasanjo is problem with Nigeria

Osinbajo noted that in the course of his career, Osoba made friends with people from outside his region, particularly among the military officers. He is a nationalist and a bridge builder, the vice president said.

He added that Osoba has gained immensely from building bridges and creating a united Nigeria as exemplified by the gathering at the event marking his birthday. Abubakar said despite the fact that he is from the Northcentral and Osoba is from the Southwest, they both share some attributes. “I left Army as a General, he left journalism as Chief Executive; while I was Head of State, he was already a governor. I was blessed with a wife who is a judge, Osoba’s wife is a renowned educationist.”

Noting his contributions to national development, he said: “Osoba has made marks as a journalist, politician, Afenifere and NADECO chieftain. We need the grace of elder statesmen like Aremo Osoba to help us chart the path forward.” The book reviewer, Mr Dapo Olorunyomi, said journalists and media scholars will be extremely grateful to the author for providing a lot of firsthand information on many missing gaps in important aspects of Nigeria’s media industry.

Osoba apologised to Governor Abiodun for turning down the offer to organise a birthday reception for him. “Jakande did not request to serve Abacha. We gave him the go-ahead. Otudeko nearly lost his business. He hid me in his office.
