Statesman Speaks

The term "Statesman" is defined in my dictionary as "one versed in the art of government; one taking a leading part in the administration of the State". The former president of Nigeria, Olesegun Obasanjo, is described by the Guardian as an "African Statesman". He’s also, on the evidence of his comments on recent events in Malawi, something of an old-fashioned bigot.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
