Yoruba-Men Must Be Proud Of Obasanjo — Aregbesola by miqos02(m): 12:46pm On Dec 11, 2012
Osun State governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, has praised the virtues of former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, describing him as a man whom every Yoruba man must be proud of.

Governor Aregbesola, who gave the commendation in Osogbo, on Monday, when he led a delegation of Owu Foundation to the governor’s office, said the state government held the former president in high esteem, a reason he was accorded the honour he rightly deserved by being asked to unveil the statue of late Bola Ige erected at the entrance to the governor’s office.

According to the governor, “It is not for nothing that Chief Obasanjo is a Yoruba person. As a Yoruba man, we must be proud of his achievements.

Governor Aregbesola said that once the powers that be recognise in the Yoruba people a lover of federalism and freedom, they would find the Yoruba the best of people to befriend and be with.

He averred that to subdue a people who want to be free would always breed chaos as Yoruba people always stopped at nothing to resist losing their freedom and autonomy.

He said: “Yoruba thrive on federalism. What I want the country to know is the fact that as far as our autonomy and freedom are recognized, we could be the best any people could have as neighbors.”

Former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, had on Monday, stormed Osun State in a visit to Governor Aregbesola’s office to commission the bust of former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice the late Chief Bola Ige, which was erected in front of the governor’s office, Osogbo.

The visit, which took political class and cross section of the people in the state by surprise attracted a crowd who struggled to catch a glimpse of the former president and ascertain his mission in the state governed by Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)-led administration of Aregbesola.

Donning light green guinea brocade with a cap to match, Obasanjo who also led a high-powered delegation of Owu Development Foundation to the governor told his host that, “You have successfully ambushed me.”

Obasanjo is a leader whose value will not be fully appreciated until he's gone.

I agree with Argbesola though some stubborn yorubas will disagree with him here.

Obasanjo is the most hated Yoruba man by Yorubas and Aregbesola is speaking for himself. I hope he doesn't get some lashing from his party for going against one of the core belief of the party.

When did Aregbesola start speaking from both sides of his mouth? Thought Obasanjo was the worst thing in their dictionary. Well, like someone earlier said, Obasanjo is a man whose worth may not be appreciated until he's gone.

I am proudly Yoruba. I love my tribe, my language, my culture and people and there are loads of Yoruba people I'm proud of who have distinguished themselves in business, politics, science, the academia, the arts and a whole lot of spheres of human endeavor and OBJ is unarguably one of them

niggadee: every yoruba men not man

So you are this poor and still trying to correct somebody that knows better than you.

Every/Each/Any are words that represent singular nouns:

1. Every boy in my class NOT Every boys in my class;
2. Each apple I took yesterday had tag on it NOT Each apples, etc. So the reporter is correct, it is you that has a lot to learn.

Pls brush up your English lang grammar.

Any yoruba or human that is proud of obj must be as i.d-iotic as obj, a subcreature,a destroyer of a nation and a wrecker of destinies.

Only misguided chimps appreciates nigerian statesrogues like obj.

Until animals like him are brought to justice,nigeria will never make sense,she will continue to spiral into deeper oblivion like she is doing at the moment.

Into the blackhole, because f.oolish peeps are not destined to survive

lmao @ "stormed"

Anyway, I like OBJ and am proud of him. The best president that Nigeria has had so far, though probably not objectively a good one overall.
