Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has denounced one of his names-Mathew, saying anyone who calls him by that name will “see my red eye.”
Obasanjo explained that he wishes not to be called Mathew because he is not a tax-collector like his biblical namesake.


The former President said he adopted only Olusegun Okikiola Aremu as his names, stressing that they have lots of connotations in African setting.
Obasanjo issued the warning at an event organised by the Nigerian Society of Engineer, NSE, on Friday in Abuja.
According to Obasanjo, “When I was born in my part of Nigeria, the system was that after eight days, you must be given a name and for people to know that you were born into a Christian family, you will be given one Hebrew name.
“My mother and father decided to name me Matthew but when I grew up, I started asking myself the meaning of Matthew.
“Not only does it not have meaning as long as I am concerned, the biblical Matthew is a stupid tax collector. Anybody who does not want to see my eyes red should stop calling me Matthew.”
