I Don't Know My True Age - Obasanjo Admits

Speaking at the 2017 International Youth Variety Day, and Public Presentation of Olusegun Obasanjo’s Books for Children earlier today, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, admitted he does not know his true age, adding that his late mother only told him she gave birth to him on a market day.

The former president who made the disclosure at theater hall of the Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta said:
“At early stage in my life, I had the challenge of knowing my date of birth, and my peers always asked, while in return I persisted in asking my mother, who was an illiterate and had no records.”

“When I continued to put pressure on my mother, she told me that she was preparing to go to market on the said day, and went into labour, and before others could return from the market, she had given birth to me.”

“I’m not as lucky as some of my peers who know the dates of their birth. What matters to me is that I have chosen a date. If I don’t even know the exact date of my birth, at least I know my age group,” Obasanjo said.
