An autobiography of erstwhile President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has been published. The three-volume book according to SaharaReporters.com earlier banned by a Nigerian court from publication went on sale on Sunday. The source said that the book would soon be available in an electronic version that is beyond the jurisdiction of Nigerian courts.
The book, chronicles the life of the Obasanjo from birth till 2014, aroused political interest after devoting significant pages to paint an unflattering portrait of Jonathan. The book characterises Jonathan as selfish, weak-willed, callous and incapable of rising to the challenges of running a complex country like Nigeria. Obasanjo also accused the president of surrounding himself with aides and political associates with corrupt tendencies.
Obasanjo’s book dedicates several parts to point out some of Jonathan’s actions and inactions he considers ill-advised or disastrous for Nigeria. He depicts Jonathan as a man who has not only destroyed the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The book focuses on several instances of policy somersaults by Jonathan as well as deliberate actions by the incumbent president that have imperiled Nigeria’s progress in the opinion of the President.
