As the letter-writing drama continue to unfold in Nigeria, First Daughter of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Iyabo has gone to radio and television desperately denying that she had no hand in the letter making the round against her father.
She pointed accusing fingers at elements at the Presidency of masterminding the ugly action that has cast shadows at the former President’s reputation.
(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 raised 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 disappoint 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 judgment, 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 latter, 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.
