The Letterman, a book on the “secret” letters of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, written by Musikilu Mojeed, the Chief Editor of Premium Times, will be publicly presented in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) of Abuja, where former President Goodluck Jonathan and other prominent guests will congregate. This amazing event will be happening at Bolton White Apartments in Abuja’s Wuse Zone 7 District.
A wide range of other prominent political, business, and government figures are anticipated at the event, which is being chaired by Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and Chairman of the Governing Council of Osun State University, Yusuf Ali. Former President, Goodluck Jonathan is the special guest of honor.
Both Ifueko Omoigui Okauru, a former chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), and the Catholic Archbishop of the Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah, who reviews books, are scheduled to speak at the event. Kayode Fayemi, the former governor of Ekiti State, Yahaya Bello, the former senators Babafemi Ojudu and Rotimi Amaechi, the director general of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Asishana Okauru, and Nuhu Ribadu, the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, are a few other dignitaries who have confirmed their attendance at the event.
The Letterman, a narrative non-fiction book with 25 chapters and 492 pages, collects some of the most important and historical letters that former President Obasanjo wrote and received. These letters powerfully tell the story of his life as it is defined by and defined by the story of his nation, Nigeria, and the larger African continent. Many of these letters, which were addressed to leaders in Nigeria and other countries, have never been made available to the general public. The book raises awareness of the importance of letter writing in politics, governance, and leadership. President Obasanjo appears like the ideal choice for this type of work given his documented propensity for utilizing letters to communicate openly to acquaintances, superiors, subordinates, and foreign figures while being unconcerned with the praise or criticism that such letters would elicit.
