The former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo was at the prestigious University of Ibadan to deliver a key note address yesterday at the first international conference of the African Studies Association of Africa (ASAA) titled, “African Studies in the Twenty-First Century, Past, Present and Future” which held in the university’s international conference centre. While the former president was delivering his key note address, he said he derived some pleasure from receiving insults from his critics.

“If you visit the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, you will find thousands of archived newspaper comics and columns meant to spite and insult my person even as a sitting President.

No individual or group of people was ever queried or jailed or repressed for expressing this freedom. Rather, I encouraged them because I derived fun and pleasure from the humour as I know who I am and nobody needs to tell me who and what I am not.”
