Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed his wish of living above 100 years.
The 83-year-old former Nigerian leader disclosed this in an event organized to mark the one year anniversary of the Agura of Gbagura, Oba Sabur Bakare, Jamolu II.
Obasanjo advised the monarch to propagate unity among traditional rules in Yorubaland while speaking at the interdenominational service.
“I will be here to celebrate your 20 years anniversary with you whether I am invited or not.
“By the time I also partake in celebrating your 20th anniversary with you, if God wishes, He can call me to come and meet Him in heaven because I know by that time, I will be above 100 or more .
“There are times that Kabiyesi don’t listen to words and there are times he does listen to words. If we are united, there is nothing we can’t do in Yorubaland and Nigeria as a whole.”

Bassy Prince: 100 wastes years. You were Head of State for four years (1976-1979) you could not put structures on ground for uninterrupted power supply, good roads, functional education, hospitals etc.above all you did not free yourself from being a northern puppet. You were given another opportunity of eight years, (1999-2007) even after your Prison experience, you did not grow brain to put any of those things in place. Which trophy are you going to get if you live to 100 years?
