Former Nigeria President, Goodluck Jonathan, has lauded the contributions of former president Olusegun Obasanjo to national development.
Jonathan stated this through a written speech on Thursday through his aide, a former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, during the official launch of a book titled, “The Letterman,” authored by Premium Times’ Editor-in-Chief, Musikilu Mojeed.
Chidoka, quoting Jonathan, said, “Mr Obasanjo us a father-like figure. Indeed, there have been ample of letters that have changed history. Obasanjo’s letters created engagements within the political arena, diplomatic world and other sectors.
“History will remember Obasanjo for the great things he did, not the quarrels and the fights.
“He will also be remembered for debt forgiveness, the creation of anti-corruption agencies, and international interventions across Africa. I also commend Mojeed for the work he has done in bringing the letters together in a single book.”
