It was an emotional moment on Sunday as Former President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo wept during the stage play titled ‘Aremu’ at the Glover Hall, Marina in Lagos.
The play, written and directed by former Director-General of the National Troupe, Prof. Ahmed Yerima, tells the story of Obasanjo from birth to adulthood and his Presidency. The story was a graphic presentation of his life and the former President could not hold back his tears.
Obasanjo, who commended the producer, Joseph Edgar, for touching a critical aspect of his life, said: “My regret in life is that my mother never sees me become what I am. She never lived to see me grow up. I hope the message in this play will be put into use.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
