Olusegun Obasanjo decorates son Adeboye Obasanjo as brigadier-general

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo decorated his son Adeboye Obasanjo on Wednesday as brigadier-general in the Nigerian Army.

Obasanjo, a former army general and ex-commander-in-chief of the armed forces, had a proud father moment when he was given the privilege by military authorities to decorate his son with his new position at the Nigerian Engineering Corp, Bonny Camp, Lagos.

The ex-President was accompanied to the occasion by the Towulade of Akinale Kingdom of Egbaland, Oba Olufemi Ogunleye.

Adeboye has two master degrees and other professional qualifications. He passed through the military mills both in Nigeria and in various foreign formations.

Adeboye married Daisy Nyada in 2008. He rose to the rank of army general last December.
