Have you wondered why our own dear Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, “Baba Iyabo” has not released an open letter on Amotekun as security solution initiated by the South- West governors? Obj is known to be brave, courageous and does not spear pen on papers when he is ready to make his opinion known on a matter.
He is famous for his open letters that cause a stir in the nation whenever they are delivered. When Obj talks, he does not request your approval to listen because you just most hear his loud voice.
Obasanjo did not begin the exploration of his letter writing gift recently, you can trace that to his archive about thirty- four years ago. He wrote one of his romantic open letters to former UK Prime Minister; Margaret Thatcher in 1986 after she sent Sir Geoffrey to go visit heads of state for South Africa on two occasions to discuss the apartheid regime. Baba iyabo, blasted her in his letter over Britain’s failure to criticize apartheid which made her position look like racism to him.
In December 2004, letters were WE exchanged between him and the then National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) in which the laundry of some dirty linens of the party was done in the public.
Open Letter To Goodluck Jonathan
Goodluck Jonathan also got an 18 page letter from Obj on December 6, 2013, where he accused him of driving the country to the precipice and allowing corruption and mutual distrust to tear at the fabric of the nation among many others.
The incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari was not speared by the piercing pen of Obj with the two well-articulated open letters address to him in July 2019 from Owu town, Ogun State. In these letters, he spoke extensively on the state of the nation and the style of governance employed by Buhari.
