Every time former President Olusegun Obasanjo speaks, the world tends to listen.

He seems to have a lot to say about almost anything and everything as regards governance in Nigeria.

He has spoken again and this time around, he is saying the Nigeria president is not as powerful as the state governors.

The general perception is that the Nigeria president is arguably the most powerful black president in the world but Obasanjo believes otherwise.

Obasanjo speaking with a Liberian-based news portal, AfricanArgument in an up close and a little too personal interview said ‘In fact, state governors are more powerful than the president. That’s the truth’

Obasanjo also said he does not believe in true federalism and that those talking about it don’t know what they are talking about.

“I don’t believe in true federalism. What is true federalism? Why are they not accountable? What powers do they not have?"

The former President also slammed those agitating for Biafra.

Obasanjo said those clamouring for the disintegration of the nation are only waiting for a ship at the airport.
