Obasanjo's Autobiography "My Watch" Now Sold In Traffic. Are They Pirated? by Nobody: 10:29pm On Dec 20, 2014
I was on my way to Ojota via Ikeja and immediately after Allen roundabout,I saw some guys selling Obasanjo's book in the traffic to commuters. I guessed they are pirated copies of the book or has the book been put out for sale? The book has three volumes but what was being sold was only two volumes which the hawkers sold for five thousand naira.

Has anyone bought the pirated copies and for how much?

That's not more than $27, but still it's quite pricey.

Let's us not jump into conclusion that the piece of info in that page with a picture of obasanjo outrightly on it is "My watch". I have never seen in the history of literature when a writer writes a book without putting the name/title on the front page. If I may ask, why is the case of obj different.

OP, I solely ask for the validity of your post. Why cant you show us where the title of the book(my watch) is written or did obj write only one book?

The name written on the book is actually different frm my watch
