The 49-year-old made this assertion during an interview with the News’ Chief Editor of Dawn-To-Dusk where she talked about her success story, her parents’ influence, and governance in Nigeria.
Talking about Nigerian leadership, she voted in favour of people who are of the view that her father was the best leader the country ever had.
According to Iyabo Obasanjo,
“Given the history of Nigeria, or even Africa in general, my father is exceptional. I think he is the best.
“In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. There is no doubt about that because we have really had bad leadership. A few of our presidents shouldn’t have been made to even run a nursery school let alone a country. So, we have had that problem.
“I have mentioned already, my father is not greedy or selfish. I agree my father is the best because he was the only one trying to solve problems. He couldn’t solve every one of them but he is the only leader apart from maybe the ones in the early 1960’s. What messed up his leadership was his ego. You can understand the ego if you are that smart in a country that has some leaders who are morons.
