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 was not on a 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 said he had refused to grant Adams’ request to visit him when he was president and after he left the office.


Obasanjo said he had a reservation for Adams ‘ past way of life which he said was not in accordance with his standards and principles.


The statement was titled “No fight to warrant reconciliation with Ad­ams – Obasanjo”


The statement read, “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 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.”
