Nigerian group heighten plans to organise anti-Obasanjo protest in London

Press Statement

Dear compatriots,

The Liberty Forum UK will be attending an event hosting General Olusegun Obasanjo, former Nigerian ruler at the London School of Economics. We shall be registering our protest in a very civil manner as guaranteed by the laws of the United Kingdom. Our aim is to continue out tradition of making the United Kingdom uncomfortable for Nigerian Corrupt misrule’s as we did against President Musa Yaradua last year. See link bellow.   http://kayodeogunda misi.blogspot. com/2008/ 07/nigerian- activist- dirupt-yaraduas- visit.html

We believe Obasonjo is not worthy of the statesman status he his now enjoying, we shall in due course be releasing statements chronicling the grounds the international community should not honour a corrupt man who left Nigeria in the hands of his fellow corrupt ruling cabal in Nigeria and a clueless President rigged into office under the joint supervision of Obasonjo and Professor Iwu.
