Olusegun Obasanjo and  John Kufuor, former presidents of Nigeria and Ghana together with the current Liberian president,Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Rwandan President Paul Kagame were painted by the  former US President, George W Bush,  who insisted that he is  "not a great painter". But that  maybe an understatement because  the paints were anything but sophisticated and  enrichly captivating.

 

 

 

Bush said  that his inspiration came from, Winston Churchill  that war prime minister of Britain during Second World War who  picked up the painting after political life.
