Obasanjo Denies Reconciling With Gani Adams

Published

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has debunked the report of settling differences with Aare Ona Kakanfo, Gani Adams.

Obasanjo in a statement released through his spokesperson, Kehinde Akinyemi, noted that his visit to a Yoruba leader, Ayo Adebanjo, was not a reconciliatory one.

He said, “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 accord 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.”

Adams was arrested by the police in 2001 when Obasanjo was in power and was in custody for more than a year after former Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Mike Okiro, declared him wanted for the alleged murder of Afolabi Amao.
