“Mandela turned down my request” to go for second-term – OBJ pays tribute to a man who was not like him (WATCH)

by Chi Ibe


As the world has celebrated former South African president, Nelson Mandela, many Nigerians have made the inevitable comparisons with our leaders – many noting that former president, Olusegun Obasanjo had the capacity to reach the heights of global iconoclasm that Mandela did, but lost that opportunity due to his desire to remain in office, even to seek a third term.

In this clip shared by Channels Television, Obasanjo appears to appreciate that distinction as he pays tribute to Mandela and speaks about his relationship with him, especially when he was released from Robben Island.
