Former President Olusegun Obasanjo may have left power years ago, but Nigerians have remembered him today to be an ‘actions president.
Following several reports of heartbreaking reports that Nigerians in South Africa are being killed in the most gruesome manners — many have said that of Obasanjo was the Commander-In-Chief, this could never have happened.
They took to Twitter to reel out several instances were the former Nigerian leader put his foot down and made a firm decision because Nigerians were killed abroad.
Some of the reactions
Obasanjo by now would have had SA's president in Aso Rock kneeling down and facing the wall.

Suddenly everybody know’s what obasanjo & PDP are capable of doing to the #Xenophobia happening in SouthAfrica.
I never thought for once obasanjo & 16 years of PDP could be appreciated in this country.

Not a fan of Obasanjo but the 8yrs he was President, Nigeria & Nigerians were respected by everyone to a certain level. OBJ pulled the plug on multimillion dollar ads running on CNN cos Jeff Koinage ran a story on militancy in Niger Delta for CNN. I think he was sacked too.
