Trending Video: Nigerians React to Shirtless Obasanjo Playing Squash with Son

A popular saying in Nigeria is: ‘Old soldier never die’ and former President Olusegun Obasanjo over the weekend stood as refreshing proof of the timeless words as he took on his son in a game of squash.

In a video clip that has been shared on social media, the former president was is seen – shirtless and booted, going hard at the game with his son, Olajuwon.

While it’s eye-popping by itself to see an 80-year-old battle-hardened retired general playing squash, there’s even more to the story as the younger Obasanjo was recently appointed president of the Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO).

This came after Olajuwon declared his support for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari, pitting him against his father who has since emerged as a vocal critic of the present administration.

Politics aside, the father and son took the time to bond by playing a game of squash at their Abeokuta residence. Talk about politics not being a do or die affair.
