grassroots activist and national president of the Nigerian oil workers'
union Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria
(PENGASSAN) that became a potent force for change in that oil-rich but
desperately poor country who was a leading challenge against those who
want Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo to seek a third presidential
term, which is prohibited by the nation's constitution (Obasanjo has
repeatedly said he will not seek a third term) and whose life-long
dedication to democratic principles and fairness to workers during the
Sani Abacha military regime had been proved invaluable in building
Nigeria's oil unions as well as today's Nigerian labour movement.
