Balogun, who was eased out of office by the then President Olusegun Obasanjo over corruption allegations, reportedly died of heart related diseases in Reddington Hospital, Lagos today Thursday August 4, 2022.

In a congratulatory statement on the birthday of the former president issued by his Media Office, Asiwaju Tinubu said: “At 85, Baba Obasanjo remains strong, agile and committed to the greatness of our dear nation.

In a statement he issued on Saturday in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, Oladunjoye said, “Like him or hate him, Baba Obasanjo is an enigma. He cannot be ignored; in and out of office, he remains influential and powerful; within the military and political circles, his opinions are weighty and well-sought after; locally and internationally, he is an elder statesman.”

Gbajabiamila, who described Obasanjo as an elder statesman and a nationalist, said the former president has paid his dues to the Nigerian project.
