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.
