Obasanjo angrily left police event in Lagos, over lack of time management by the NPF

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Thursday left an event organized by the Nigeria Police angrily, because they kept him waiting.

Obasanjo, who was the special guest of honour at the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone II maiden biannual special training and capacity building programme, advised the police authorities to be ready when next they invite him.

The ex- President was at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, venue of the training for more than 90 minutes before the event started.

The event billed for 10:30 a.m. didn’t begin until 11:52 a.m, with Obasanjo informing the gathering he had to return to Ogun State for an event he left midway to attend the police training. Obasanjo then informed those present, that he had to return to Ogun State for another event.

“Next time, before you call me, please be ready,” he said.

Speaking on the initiative, Obasanjo called for more training among security operatives and urged the Force to be in tune with the latest 

He said: “Police must be aware and in touch with new developments in other parts of the globe. I can see my former IGP Musiliu Smith.

“Smith is completely out of date to give lecture on police duty. He has experience to share with you, but not on modern way of doing things. I don’t even know how digital you (Smith) are.”
