Former president of Nigeria, President Olusegun Obasanjo sits with founder of Joy, Inc. and host of the viral TV show #WithChude, Chude Jideonwo on a democracy day special. In this special episode, he spoke about Tinubu’s character, third Term and why he insisted on Peter Obi’s candidacy for Nigeria.
Introducing the special on his Instagram page, Chude said, “We talked about the legacy of this man whom some have called the father of modern Nigeria, and the most consequential Nigerian alive. I asked him what he wanted to be remembered for and how some milestones of his life have defined that legacy. I asked frank questions, and he gave me frank answers, about vying for third term in office, allegations of being corrupt, statements about him trying to cripple Lagos economy under the current president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, why he stood so firm behind the candidacy of Peter Obi, about the many letters he has written and why it remains impossible for anyone to ignore him”.
“President Obasanjo didn’t flinch at any point, and I am honored that he invited me to his office, and we had what will be an interview for the books with me on #WithChude”, he added.
