Why Obasanjo walked out of police event in Lagos

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Thursday left an event organized by the Nigeria Police, because they kept him waiting.



Obasanjo was the special guest of honour, at the Zone II maiden biannual special training and capacity building programme, at the Federal Palace Hotel in Lagos.

He arrived 90 minutes before the event, which was billed to start 10.30am but didn’t begin until 11.52am.
Obasanjo then informed those present, that he had to return to Ogun State for another event.

“Next time, before you call me, please be ready,” he said.

Speaking on the initiative, Obasanjo called for more training among security operatives and urged the Force to be in tune with the latest technology around the world.

He said: “Police must be aware and in touch with new developments in other parts of the globe. I can see my former IGP Musiliu Smith.

“Smith is completely out of date to give lecture on police duty. He has experience to share with you, but not on modern way of doing things. I don’t even know how digital you (Smith) are.”
