Obasanjo calls vanguard "bloodly idiot"



With echoes of the open letter to
former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo from his
daughter, Iyabo, reverberating nationwide, the daughter
yesterday gave reasons she gave up on her father ever
Senator Iyabo Obasanjo spoke against the
background of mixed reactions from Yoruba elders and
politicians on the import of the letter which she said
was the last communication with her father.
The former president himself was furious when
approached by Vanguard, yesterday, as he hurled
invectives at the newspaper. The exchange between
Vanguard and the former president ran thus:
Vanguard: Sir, we tried reaching you all through
yesterday, to no avail, over the letter written by your
daughter, Iyabo, to you.
Chief Obasanjo: You are a bloody idiot, you have
published the paper and you are now looking for me,
you are an idiot, don’t call me again. When Iyabo
finishes you in court…. (hangs up).
Senator Obasanjo nevertheless flayed the
orchestrated attempt in the social media by a network
of associates of her father to separate her from the
Aremo Olusegun Osoba, former governor of Ogun
State, who was cited in the letter, confirmed the
meeting between him and Iyabo in Massachusetts,
United States but distanced himself from the plot
allegedly cited by her father to empower her with the
ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC for the
next round of elections.
Besides, Aremo Osoba, several prominent Yoruba
elders spoke on the development among whom were
Afenifere leader, Chief Rueben Fasoranti, Afenifere
bigwig, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Dr. Frederick Fasehun,
Chief Ebenezer Babatope and Hon. Femi Kehinde, a
former member of the House of Representatives.
Senator Iyabo Obasanjo had written an open letter to
her father accusing him of being a liar, manipulator,
wife-basher and hypocrite who was desperate for a
third term despite his denials to the contrary.
