It is very unbelievable that three former Governors of Ogun State yesterday did not deem it fit to congratulate former President Olusegun Obasanjo on his 83rd birthday.
The former Governors, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and Chief Olusegun Osoba did not greet Obasanjo, neither did they attend the birthday party.
Before now, Amosun used to attend Obasanjo’s birthday as the governor of Ogun but he was not there yesterday. Our correspondent waited to see a birthday message from him, but none came.
The duo of Daniel and Osoba have not been attending Obasanjo’s birthday in the past, so their absence could not have been too surprising.
However, with the way people across Nigeria and other African nations celebrated Obasanjo yesterday, one would feel it will be wrong for people from his state to ignore him on that very important occasion.
It could not be confirmed whether or not any of them called Obasanjo on phone.
