Fire In My Home A ‘Minor’ Incident, Obasanjo Says by fkaz(m): 4:36am On Dec 28, 2012
http://mobile.saharareporters.com/news-page/update-fire-my-home-%E2%80%98minor%E2%80%99-incident-obasanjo-says
Former Nigeria President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has described the fire at his Abeokuta home on Thursday as a minor one which only affected the office of his Personal Assistant.
Obasanjo, who was not at home at the time, was not sure of the cause of the incident, telling the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), “It may have been some electrical problem.”
NAN quoted him as saying of the incident, “Ile Obasanjo to jo e wa lo bu si,’’ which means, “The fire incident will only add beauty to Obasanjo's house.”
Observers say that as one of Nigeria’s wealthiest men, Obasanjo clearly meant that he will take the opportunity to upgrade the quality of the edifice.
According to the general himself, when he left prison in 1998 he was worth only N20,000 (about $1300). He left office in 2007 an astoundingly rich man. Even his farm, which was dying during his imprisonment, was in November 2004 confirmed by his spokesman, Femi Fani-Kayode to have recovered during his presidency and to be making about N30 million ($250.000) per month.
It would be an irony of sorts should the fire in his mansion today be traced to an “electrical” fault. In his eight years in power, Obasanjo frittered about $16 billion into the hands of contractors and associates in “search” of electricity. None of the money has been accounted for, and the House of Representatives found that some of those who received money did not even clear the land on which they were supposed to have been conducting business or building power plants.

Yes sir indeed. 16 billion greenback dollars of looted money will fund the construction of many many more mansions to replace the one slightly damaged by this "electrical" fire. Thank you Jeeeeeesus.

For 2013, I pray that God directs me to join the endless "search" for electricity in Nigeria, so the Eagle can land for me to, in Jeeeeesus name, amen.

The only reason it's a minor accident is because you have the money to modify the wreckage

Obasanjo's house has always been on fire since he slept with his son's wife. Yesterday's fire is a small one compared to the fire ignited by obj with his resilient yoghurt gun.

I heard the news today on Channels. The fire was just a small fraction of the whole edifice so he could afford to sing.
I thought it was the type of fire that rocked Lagos Island.
