Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has described former president, Olusegun Obasanjo as an international states-man and an authentic African Icon.
Speaking at the grand opening of the multibillion naira Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, yesterday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, Professor Osinbajo noted that not many people had opportunity of making history and writing it in life as done by chief Obasanjo who he said had rare opportunity to govern the country as a military head of state and two terms democratically elected president.
Also speaking at the ceremony, the chairperson of Economic Community of African States, ECOWAS, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, said the establishment of the presidential library has become a precedence that must be emulated by African leaders as she argued that such libraries would enable government to preserve records.
