Obasanjo Farms Documentary NIGERIA

12 Nov

I had privelige of a month as guest of Olusegun Obasanjo at his Otta Farm 1985; exciting to see Obasanjo Farms flourish over 27 years…

“I arrived Murtala Muhammad Airport 26th March 1985…and no one was expecting me!

Managed to find good people in the chaos, and central Lagos several locally brewed & delicious Guinness later & a night at Hotel Palm Palm 2 watching UK ‘s Rising Damp in TV lounge…I got delivered to Obasanjo Farm Otta…to be greeted by a stripped to the waist and wearing white jeans and purple cap, Olusegun himself, on a bicycle, chatting or shouting, as he did in one breath, whilst great convoy of Chick trucks banked up in the Farm’s main driveway…no one daring to complain at Oba’s important gossip session nor their dusty need for beer & chopping.

One of the most inspiring & welcoming months of my life…amazing people, amazing country, wonderful hot Sun to make ones heart smile every day &  dance…

We loved a Farm in Africa…in the heart of the Ogun State…
