December 18, 2013 – Iyabo Obasanjo Denies Open Letter To Father Blames President Jonathan “OBJ Is D Best Dad In The World”
Do you guys remember the viral open letter purportedly written by the daughter of Ex-Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo that came out few hours ago, the woman at the center of the storm, Iyabo Obasanjo has denied ever writing such letter.
Iyabo Obasanjo who described her father “Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo” as the best father in the world said she didn’t write any letter insulting him.
She further said President Jonathan should stop his political games and confront her father directly if he wants to reply the open letter her father wrote him.
Iyabo Obasanjo further said she is a well-cultured Yoruba woman who takes the issue of parental respect seriously.
Hear what she said on Rainbow FM few hours ago:
” I Did Not Write Any Letter to My Father, IYABO OBASANJO Speaks Out! December18, 2013 IYABO OBASANJO (On Rainbow FM):
“I have never seen or heard this sort of fabrication in my entire life! I, IYABO OBASANJO never contemplate writing a letter to my Loving Father. I speak with him almost on daily bases. “Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo is the best father in the world. He gave birth to me, he raise me up and gave me the best of Education. I wouldn’t have achieved whatever I did without my father. IN FACT, WHO AM I WITHOUT MY FATHER? “As a father he never disappoints his children in any way, he is a father anybody wish to have.
“If President Jonathan want to reply the letter my father wrote him, he should be man enough to reply direct. Why are they trying to make me a scape goat? I know my father very well and I don’t question his judgement, I believe my father wrote his letter in the best interest of the nation. If Mr. President disagree with some of the allegations in the letter, let him be man enough to talk directly to my father, he should stop involving me in an issue I know nothing about. “How can you write a letter to insult my father and claim I, the daughter is the source.
If that is how Ijaw people insult their father, I am a Yoruba Woman; we respect our parent in all circumstances. “I IYABO OBASANJO did not write any letter. Nigerians should please take note. “The purported letter is a malicious lies intended to rubbish the good name of my family, when I get to the source of the letter, I will waste no time to take the necessary legal actions. “I love my father and I never disrespect him.”
Hope this has finally put an end to the rumour flying around.
Iyabo Obasanjo is not the person behind the letter.
So who are the jobless people framing up letters aimed at destroying the relationship between Obasanjo and his beloved daughter?
