He had expected me to be constantly consulting him: Alhaji Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari, 1925 – 2018

“It true that I did not court power and wanted to be nothing than a Senator, but I am proud to have been pushed by millions of Nigerians voters while General Obasanjo was pushed by only a handful of military officers into power.  I understand from someone very close to him, however, that he had expected me to be constantly consulting him on all matters of government since he had an obsession of being a super administrator, super diplomat and of coup genius.” Alhaji Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari, 1925 – 2018
