Nigeria's Obasanjo Elected Chairman Council Of World's Ex-Presidents

Nigeria's ex president, Chief Olusegun Matthew Aremu Okikiola Obasanjo was the African pride at the 32nd annual plenary meeting of the World's ex presidents where he was appointed the council's new chairman.

 OBJ as he's fondly address is holding the record as the first ever African to be appointed as Chairman Council of ex Presidents, an association that has all World's ex presidents as members.

 Our own OBJ was elected to steer the exalted position recently at the 32nd annual plenary meeting of world ex-presidents in Newport, United Kingdom recently.

 He takes over from Franz Vranitzky who was a former chancellor of Austria from 1986-1996 before he later became chairman of world ex-presidents on 1st July 2010 and served  till June 2015.

 Nigeria's ex president, Chief Obasanjo is the 5th Chairman of the council that has had international icons such as Helmut Schmidt of Germany, Malcolm Fraser of Australia, Jean Chretien of Canada and Franz Vranitzky of Australia as its past leaders.
