Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said he had no quarrel with the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams.
Obasanjo said his meeting with Adams at the residence of a Chieftain of Afenifere ,Chief Ayo Adebanjo in Lekki Phase was not on reconciliatory mission.
Obasanjo in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi on Wednesday said he paid a visit to Adebanjo, but met Adams there .
The former president had refused to grant Adams’ request to visit him when he was president and after he left the office .
Obasanjo said he had his reservation about Adams’ past way of life which he said was not in accord with his standard and principles.
The statement was titled, ‘No fight to warrant reconciliation with Adams – Obasanjo.’
The statement reads partly, ‘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 standard 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.”
