Olusegun Obasanjo who has ruled Nigeria both as a military ruler and a civilian recently described the saddest day of his life. He said the saddest day of his life was when he appeared before the military tribunal that tried him for alleged complicity in a coup against late former military dictator, Sani Abacha.
Obasanjo revealed this while leading a morning devotion to mark Valentine’s Day at his Presidential Hilltop residence in Abeokuta, Ogun state on Tuesday, February 14. He also revealed how following pressure from international community leaders including former American president, Jimmy Carter, the Abacha regime reduced his sentence to 15 years. However, when Abacha died, he spent only three years in prison. When he left prison, he said he met an agitation for him to contest for president, adding, “but the rest is history.” He also said: “I was born in a village and anybody born in that village would have concluded that the popularity of those born there would not go beyond the next village. My parents were complete illiterates."
