Obasanjo To Speak On Boko Haram As African Leaders Gather For His 83rd Birthday




Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is set to speak on the Boko Haram insurgents at his 83rd birthday on March 5th.

The development was revealed by the Director, Centre for Human Security and Dialogue, Prof. Peter Okebukola at the world press conference he addressed on Monday at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, had earlier stated that the insurgents would have been degraded if Obasanjo were to be the President.

Okebukola, when asked on that statement, said Obasanjo alongside other African leaders would speak on the solutions that would help the country fight insurgency.

Their speeches would also include discussions on how to develop Africa using Asia as a yardstick.

The former NUC Executive Secretary informed that former Liberian President Johnson Sirleaf; former Sierra Leonean President, Ernest Bai Koroma and former Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn would have a round-table on ‘The Asian Aspiration’, to share lessons from Asia’s development for strengthening Africa’s socio-economic integration and cooperation.

President Obasanjo has been known for calling out the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration over the level of insecurity in the country.
