Obasanjo’s ‘wisdom’

From today's Punch

“I have always told young Nigerians that they should not make money alone here in Nigeria; that they should spend it here. They asked how they could spend it here and I told them, ‘If you have married one wife, marry another.”
OBJ's answer on how to invest money in the country, has this man heard about family planning?

“You see, the former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Kofi Annan, once called me after I left office to ask what I had been doing since I left office. I just told him that I’ve been learning to become lazy.”
Two retiree's exchange notes

“Lecturers are powerful. If they scold me, I don’t have a choice but to take their scolding. Were you not scolded when you were in school? Did you refuse the scolding? If you had, I don’t think you would have graduated. So, now that I’m back in school, I want to graduate too. So, I won’t take their instructions lightly. I don’t want to fail. When they scold me, I’ll take it like a normal student.”
OBJ enrolls in the National Open University of Nigeria. I want to meet the lecturer with the guts to fail him. Anyway, let's hope he doesn't become to lazy to study !!
