The completed Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Iseyin Campus, which contains the College of Agricultural Sciences and Renewable Natural Resources, was dedicated to Obasanjo, who Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State invited.
In a widely shared video during the commissioning of these projects, the former president could be heard scolding the monarchs in attendance while sporting a sad expression.
Obasanjo addressed the Oyo kings in Yoruba while saluting them and directing them to stand up and give him a proper bow.
During a public event, he asserted, it is imperative that they show respect to those who deserve it.
No matter the situation, according to Obasanjo, a monarch must acknowledge the presence of a governor or president.
While this was happening, several Nigerians responded to the widely shared footage of former president Obasanjo ordering monarchs to stand and greet him on social media.
