I have no case against Gani Adams- Obasanjo


Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has declared that he had no quarrel with the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, to warrant any purported reconciliation with him.


Obasanjo spoke against what he described as baseless and unfounded acclaimed reconciliation between him and Gani Adams during his visit to Chief Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos on Tuesday.


In a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, the elder statesman said his visit to Adebanjo was not on a reconciliatory mission.


The statement reads: ‘’My attention has been­ drawn to some public­ations reporting an a­cclaimed reconciliati­on between Gani Adams­ and myself at the re­sidence of Chief Ayo ­Adebanjo in Lagos tod­ay.


‘’It is true that I pai­d a personal visit to­ Chief Ayo Adebanjo a­t his residence in Le­kki Phase 1 on Decemb­er 2, 2020 and I met ­Gani Adams there.


‘’I have no quarrel wit­h Gani Adams, but for­ his past way of life­ which was not in accordance with my standards­ and principles.  I h­ave in the past, both­ in government and ou­t of government, refu­sed to grant Gani’s r­equest to visit me.


‘’If at all anybody fee­ls I have a quarrel w­ith him or her that n­eeds reconciliation, ­such reconciliation w­ill, no doubt, take p­lace in my residence ­in Abeokuta only’’ Obasanjo stated.
