Giving Him Props?

Howard Johnsons on the Savanna! olusegun-obasanjo-library.jpg

Wole Soyinka has called out former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, saying the Obasanjo Presidential Library is trying to scam UNESCO out of African artifacts.

Nigeria’s Nobel Laureate says Obasanjo doesn’t deserve the stuff.

“The man who named that library has no interest in culture. He takes pride in being uncultured.”

This seems harsh for a man whose Library can offer the following inspiring words:

“The Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library is found on three props: Leadership, Transparancy and Agriculture. To strengthen his belief in the last cause, Presidential Obasanjo, him as an acclaimed farmer, plans to write a book on increasing food production in Africa.

These three policy thrusts guided President Obasanjo throughout his years of public life and allowed him to lead, achieve and create a vivid, lasting legacy that continues to shape and influence, form and guide the times in which we live right now.”
