SEE Why Obasanjo Refused To Reveal His Next Of Kin At NIMC Office

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday Friday  august 22nd in Oke-Mosan Abeokuta registered for his National Identity Card (NIC) and decided to keep the information about his next of kin away from the prying eyes of reporters who were bent on capturing his personal data.

Obasanjo who arrived at the National Identity Management Commission office around 1:35pm, quickly had his height measured and finger prints taken.

But when it got to the column requiring information about his next of kin, the former president who had been responding orally to the NIMC officials’ questions, picked a piece of paper, covered it with his palm, wrote the name of his next of kin and handed it over to the commission’s personnel.

He then turned to curious reporters and surging television cameramen, and said:

“I have decided to keep my next of kin secret and away from you. If you know it, you will give it undue publicity,”

the former president said.
