Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president of Nigeria, once again astounded Nigerians with his agility as he was seen displaying his football prowess on the field with former classmates.
The Site News understands that Obasanjo led the football team of Baptist Boys High School (BBHS), Abeokuta, in a friendly football match yesterday as part of events to commemorate the 100th year of the college.
In a viral video shot at the outset of the college’s centennial event, the former president was seen serving as a senior prefect to his former classmates, making waves earlier.
On Monday, Obasanjo became the star attraction for spectators as he showed off his football skills on the pitch. Naija News learnt that the novelty match was fixed between the old students of the college and former teachers.
Obasanjo scored a hattrick to end the match in 3-0 in favour of his side, Premium Times reports.
Some of the notable old students of the school who reportedly took part in the game include Bukola Olopade, a former Sports Commissioner in Ogun State; and Hakeem Akintunde, who is the Chairman of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) in the state.
