Former Nigerian president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has debunked some publications in the media claiming that there was a reconciliation between himself and the Are Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams.

This was contained in a statement signed by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, in Abeokuta, a copy which was made available to our correspondent.

He said it was true that he paid a personal visit to the residence of the Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Adebanjo at Lekki Phase 1, Lagos on Wednesday December 2,2020 and he met Gani Adams there.

Obasanjo, however said he had no quarrel with the Are Ona Kakanfo but for­ his past way of life­ which was not in consonance with his own standards­ and principles.

He noted that h­ave in the past, both­ in government and ou­t of government, he had refu­sed to grant Gani Adams’ r­equest to visit him.

He, however added that if at all anybody felt he had a quarrel w­ith him that n­eeded reconciliation, ­such reconciliation w­ill, no doubt, take p­lace in his residence ­in Abeokuta only.

The statement read in part, “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.”
