Nigeria's president Olusegun Obasanjo was honoured with a major street on Mach 8, 2007. According to Accra mayor Mr. Blankson, it was a way of saying thank you to a man who has stood to help the Ghanaian nation in times of hardship.
Obasanjo has been like most past Nigerian leaders a good Samaritan outside the shores of the country but a tyrant at home. General elections come up in April and it might just be time up for him if he allows the elections to go ahead as planned.
