Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s Book Is Selling Fast, While Police and SSS are still trying to summon the courage to seize President Olusegun Obasanjo’s new book –My Watch – reports have it that copies of the much-anticipated and controversial autobiography by Obasanjo have sold out within a mere three days after it was released on Tuesday.
Almost everybody want to have a copy of the highly explosive book, no matter how expensive. Asked how Obasanjo had reacted to the impediments placed in his way, his aide said, “Baba expected such behavior. He is just watching them and laughing.”
“Baba [Obasanjo] sold all the copies that were brought in,” an associate of Mr. Obasanjo’s told Sahara Reporters. The three-volume book brims with sharp criticism of President Goodluck Jonathan, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, and former Governors Bola Tinubu, Bukola Saraki and James Ibori.
Hours before the book was scheduled to be launched last Tuesday, Buruji Kashamu, an alleged drug baron, got an order from a High Court judge barring the book’s publication. But Obasanjo proceeded with the launch of the book, stating that the book was already published before the judge gave his order and that the order did not prohibit him from launching the book.
