The boy Obasanjo adopted in 2005 is now all grown

Pictured above (2nd from left) is Nsikak Udo Henry from Ikot Ebekpo in Onna LGA, Akwa Ibom State, adopted in 2005 during former president Olusegun Obasanjo’s first working visit to the state. He was 9 years old then. 

He is now a 200 level Economics student at the Bells University, Abeokuta, Ogun State and enjoys all the full privileges accorded to all Obasanjo’s biological children. He’s pictured with Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, yesterday during Obasanjo’s 79th birthday celebration.

When Obasanjo visited his community in 2005, his mother kept rolling on the floor and crying: “My president please help me, my president please help me.” Obasanjo moved closer to her and asked: “Madam, do you know me?” The woman replied: “Yes nah, na u be my president na.”

Obasanjo asked: “What do you do? How can I help your business?” The woman replied: “Na only one pikin I get, na hin be my business” Obasanjo then said: “Give me your boy and I will make him president one day.” The story was featured on NTA back then….. now we kno our president come 2047…..
