There are interesting developments between the United States of America (USA) and Nigeria in respect of John F. Kennedy (JFK) and John Kayode Fayemi (JKF), Barack Obama and Abiola Ajimobi, as well as Bill Clinton and Olusegun Obasanjo a.k.a OBJ.

JFK and JKF are both Catholics. Both attended three different universities: JFK Harvard, Princeton and London School of Economics; JKF, University of Lagos, University of Ife, and Kings College London.
