OTUMU/CONTRIBUTING EDITOR, HOUSTON,
TEXAS

HE’S regarded in Diplomatic circles and among


members of International Community as a ‘Fox’, ‘a
cat with Nine Lives.’ Nigeria’s former president
Olusegun Obasanjo is not just intelligent, but endowed with profound
native wisdom to navigate the vicissitudes of life. He’s highly passionate
about Nigeria’s progress, which is why he find it extremely difficult to
keep mute and not pass his own comment on ‘Nigeria’s State of the
Nation’. By all standards, he is a billionaire, a farmer, an entrepreneur
and smart businessman. As at today, all over North America, Texas
precisely where the highest number of Africans in America reside,
Obasanjo Farm’s frozen chicken has become a household name as the
majority of Africans always ensure they place order and buy the
chickens to have a ‘feel’ of Nigerian true delicacy.

Our correspondent observed that due to high demand of Obasanjo


Farm’s chicken by majority of Africans and many Mexicans, the
chickens are mostly sold-out. From famous African shops like ‘Africana
International Market’, Asafo Market’ and South West Farmers’ Market,
only the latter sell Obasanjo Farm’s chicken which has become one of
the selling strengths for South West Farmers’ Market. From Houston,
Grand Prairie to Arlington in Texas where South West Farmers’ Market
have branches, Africans and Mexicans are often on long queue to
purchase this deliciously-tasty chicken.

Chatting with one of the employees of South West Framers’ Market


(who would not want his name in print since he is not permitted to
speak to the press) confessed that since the arrival of Obasanjo Farm’s
chicken into their stores, sales have tripled which made all the staff
happy.

His words: “Lots of Africans and Mexicans visit our stores regularly to
buy Obasanjo Farm’s chicken, Snail, Fresh fish, Meat-pie, fresh
tomatoes, yams, Garri, Fufu, Yam Flour and other African food items
which will sell at affordable rates. We have heard from many Africans’
feedback that thy use Obasanjo Farm’s chicken to prepare sweet soup
and stew. Since 6 months ago, we have noticed that lots of Mexicans
who patronize us always place order for Obasanjo Farm’s chicken. It is
good to know we are selling fast and making waves in North America.
We accept all credit and debit cards for purchase of groceries.”

But on our numerous visits to Africana International Market, we


observed the store does not sell Obasanjo Farm’s chicken, but specialize
in selling Ijebu Garri, Fufu, Ewedu, Overseas phone cards, Nigerian
designed jeweleries. Their strength lies in Overseas money transfer
service to Nigerians sending money directly into their loved ones.

In Asafo market, there is no trace of Obasanjo Farm’s chicken in their


fridge, but you conspicuously see Cow Skin (Ponma), Turkey, Ola Ola
Fufu, Wheat, Ghana Garri, Kenke, Yam, various condiment for soup
delicacy and Ghana’s clothes on sale.

Ota Farm Rakes in $250,000 Daily as Proceeds

Meanwhile, Otta Farm, a huge agricultural estate owned by Obasanjo


provided jobs for 6,000 youths instead of them (the youths) being idle.
OBJ as fondly called put this initiative into action so that the youths can
channel their energies into worth-while ventures instead of being
National Security risks. This position was reportedly echoed by Elder
Daniel Atsu, Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer for
Obasanjo Holdings Ltd, parent body for Obasanjo Farm when he said:
“The decision of the former president to invest in the country is aimed
at creating huge jobs for the youths. This is why OBJ created 6, 000 jobs
in Otta Farm for the youths.”

Some years ago, a statement credited to Obasanjo through one of the


news media revealed that the president’s farm makes an average of
$250,000 a day which calls for celebration and a thorough review. At

the then exchange rate of 138 Naira to a dollar the General must be
making over 34.5 million Naira per day and with an average of five
working days the farming is grossing 172.5million Naira a week, with 50
weeks of work excluding 2 weeks to clean up and maintain the farm the
Ota farm must be grossing averagely 8.3 billion Naira in a year. You can
imagine how much Otta Farm is making now that the exchange rate of
One dollar goes for N345! The above analysis makes the farm one of the
most lucrative businesses in Africa.

That means with a lucrative investment that yields over 57 billion


annual revenue, it would not be out of place to assume that this
company is actively playing it’s social responsibilities in Ota
community, giving scholarships to Ota indigenes, participating in
community, schools and police developments within that community.
Certainly, this company is assumed to be actively involved in keeping
Ota in the fore front of Nigeria economic advancement.

According to World Bank, Nigeria is classified as mixed economy


emerging market, which has reached lower middle-income status. It’s
the 5oth largest export market for United States’ goods and the 14th
largest exporter of goods to the US. The Nigerian Stock Exchange is the
second largest in Africa and Nigeria was once ranked 30th in the world
in terms of GDP. Today, Nigeria is the US’ largest trading partner in
sub-Saharan Africa and supplies a fifth of its oil.

OBJ Squanders Sani Abacha’s N100billion Loot

When providence entrusted Nigeria into the hands of Obasanjo in 1999


as a Civilian President, he received from General Abdusalam Abubakar,
a former Nigerian Head of States, properties worth N100 billion,
including cash items of $625,263,187.19; 75,306,886.93 pounds sterling
and N100,000,000; yet refused till date to account for the money or the
properties. These Properties/Assets belonging to Late General Sani
Abacha are: Plot 135(A6), House No. 12, Zaire Crescent, Maitama; Plot
574 (A4), Yakubu Gowon Crescent near ECOWAS Secretariat, Asokoro;
Plot 2824 (A6), Block No. 17, along Danube Street, Maitama; Plot 650
(A6), Rhine Street, Maitama; Plot 1487 (A4), Justice Mamman Nasir
Street; Plot 2480 (A6) Alvan Ikoku Street, Maitama; Plot 636 Adeyemo
Alakija Street, Victoria Island (Cowry House). Finally, 30 per cent
shares valued at $420,000 USD, in West African Refinery, Sierra Leone
(Purchased from UNIPETROL).

In addition to the properties listed there were the following cash items:
$625,263,187.19; 75,306,886.93 pounds sterling and N100,000,000. In
those days with the US dollar exchanging for N130 per dollar and a
pound fetching N250, the total Abacha loot alone Abubakar handed to
Obasanjo’s government was about N100 billion. That was just from the
first set of loot found in Nigeria. You can imagine how much fund and
properties were forfeited by Abacha’s National Security Adviser,
Ismaila Gwarzo, Mohammed Abacha, Abdulkadir Abacha, Alhaji Bashir
Dalhatu and Chief Tony Ani. Then you will begin to understand why
Obasanjo does not want a probe of the Abacha loot.

Nigeria’s former President Net Worth hits $1.3billion

A recent Net Review of World’s Head of State online by an International


Review panel showed that Nigeria’s Obasanjo have a Net Worth of $1.3
billion and many of his co-ex Presidents live as billionaires. Truth is,
Presidents of many nations are millionaires and even billionaires.
Sometimes this is from the wealth needed to obtain political position,
and sometimes it is the result of taking a high percentage of the wealth
in the country as personal assets. In many countries, simply doing
business in that country requires payments to officials in order to keep
the process moving. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is worth
$9.4 billion, hence Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo is worth $1.3
billion. President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe is worth $3 billion.

Why He Can Never Be Probed, Poor Again

As at today, Obasanjo is more highly adored and respected outside the


shores of Nigeria, which was unanimously, he was appointed Chairman
of council of world ex-presidents. OBJ made history as the first African
to be appointed at the 32nd annual plenary meeting of world ex-
presidents in Newport, United Kingdom recently. He took over from
Franz Vranitzky who was a former chancellor of Austria from 1986-
1996 before he later became chairman of world ex-presidents chairman
on 1st July 2010 and served till June 2015. Being the Chairman of World
ex-Presidents, with strong Diplomatic contacts in United Nations,
friend to every government in power in Nigeria and strong network in
World Bank additionally to the fortune of $250, 000 daily generated as
profits in Ota firm, it is crystal clear OBJ cannot probed and would
never be poor again.

The InterAction Council of former Heads of State and Government was


established in 1983 and it is an international organisation,whose
objective is to address political,economic and social problems
confronting humankind.
