S-H-A-M-E ,Former Nigerian President Obasanjo Gets Booed On Emirates Flight From Dubai To Nigeria


Obasanjo On Board The Flight.
Former Nigerian three-term president, Olusegun Obasanjo was booed on an Emirates flight 783 from Dubai to Lagos on 14 November 2013. Obasanjo was returning from a business trip in Dubai when his countrymen gave him an unfriendly welcome on the flight with boos and invective.
The Nigerians had been waiting on the cue to board when they were asked to make way for the First Class premium passenger. Eager to board , the Economy class passengers protested that after Obasanjo took them hostage for over 10 years as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, they were not so ready to step aside to make way for him, to control them from the “passenger seat”. Obasanjo did not settle on his seat in the First Class. He stood up and went round the plane as if to test his popularity. I asked Obasanjo, from my seat, if he was not afraid of being assaulted by an irate passenger. He was leaning over me screening my face as if looking for a lost friend. He showed me a Rastafarian walking behind him saying, “He takes care of me.” He also added that he is a survivor of many attempts on his life and was not scared of a few boos. Very bold set of passengers.
