Politics Nigeria: Osinbajo Mistaken for Obasanjo's Son at ECOWAS Summit



Nigeria's Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday said he isn't as controversial as ex President Olusegun Obasanjo.

He was speaking at the 2017 Murtala Muhammed Foundation Memorial Lecture held at the Shehu Yar’adua Centre, Abuja.

He narrated how he attended an ECOWAS summit and a French man approached him demanding to know if he was the son of the former President.

He said the man was apparently confused in the similarity between his name and Obasanjo's.

Responding he'd said, ‘’Yes, as a matter of speaking.

‘’I have not managed to become anywhere near as controversial as baba, but give me time as a good son, I will.”

The remark of the acting President drew much laughter from the audience including Obasanjo himself.
