Great leaders like Obasanjo plant trees whose shade they may never enjoy, says Jonathan


Nigeria’s former president, Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday played host to another former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, at his country home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State.

Mr Obasanjo was in Bayelsa for medical check-up as a guest of the Bayelsa government which launched a new health programme. He made a stop-over at Mr Jonathan’s home.

Mr Jonathan, apparently delighted with the visit, later wrote on Facebook, “I am firmly of the view that Nigeria will progress faster when great leaders, like President Obasanjo and other statesmen, plant trees whose shade they know they may never enjoy.”

He posted on the social media site photos of himself and his guest, Mr Obasanjo, beaming with smiles.

The governor of Bayelsa, Seriake Dickson, was present when the two former leaders met.
