According to Obasanjo, he was Buhari’s former boss in the military and so remains his boss for life. When he was Head of State, Obasanjo had, in March 1976, appointed Buhari as the Federal Commissioner (position now called minister) for Petroleum and Natural Resources.

Obasanjo made the statement while speaking at the 2018 Ibogun Day Celebration in Ogun, Southwest Nigeria.

“I know Buhari and he, too, knows me. Till the day I die, Buhari will continue to address me as ‘Sir.’”
