Gbenga Obasanjo – My father slept with my wife

This one is a must-keep.

The father, the son, a wife…and a marriage on the rocks
By Nnamdi Inyama

IT may take a while, probably as long as the marriage lasted, to determine which attracted more attention, the solemnisation or the disintegration.

Whichever it turns out to be, none of those who were immediately or remotely connected with Mojisola Onabanjo’s wedding to Olugbenga Obasanjo on April 29, 2000, could ever have imagined it would end the way it now seems doomed to.

Everybody had then thought what a beautiful couple Gbenga and Mojisola made, the son of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the daughter of a renowned businessman, Chief Alex Onabanjo.

Gbenga, once described as one of Nigeria’s most eligible bachelors, was at last, hooked by the beautiful damsel, Mojisola, a union many thought of as the proverbial marriage “made in-heaven”.

At least, none of the “movers and shakers” of the Nigerian society that crowded the Archbishop Vining Memorial Church, Government Reserved Area (G.R.A.), Ikeja, Lagos that Saturday, literally stepping over each other to ensure their presence was noticed and acknowledged, could have thought the marriage was made anywhere, but in Heaven.

It has turned out it was otherwise as each side is now giving the other hell in a bitter divorce battle.

Indeed, the marriage may even have been made in the deeper recesses of hell, going by the scandal thrown up by the union in its death throes.

Before it blew open recently, with the publication of Gbenga’s fresh affidavit, only those with the privilege of being close to the petitioner and his estranged wife knew that the union was rocking violently.

Many of them may have hoped that wise counsel would prevail and the couple would find it in themselves to bury the hatchet and save the marriage, even if for the sake of the children.

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was still President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria when the disintegration of his son’s marriage started

In her cross-petition filed in the same court, Mojisola accuses her husband of acts of physical violence against her person, as well as not being alive to his responsibilities towards their two children, Boluwatife and Wuraola.

Under Particulars of Income of the Petitioner, Mojisola claims her husband makes an average yearly income of over N500 million.

She is demanding ample compensation because of the financial status of the husband.

According to her: “The Petitioner earns from commissions paid to him as an agent to a construction company with various construction projects, which was recently awarded an N11 billion contract.

“The Petitioner has several construction contracts from Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

She says her husband owns substantial shares in an oil trading company, Linetrale Trading Company Ltd., a company engaged in importing, selling, supplying and marketing of petroleum products.

He also collects oil allocations from Nigerian National

Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

“The Petitioner receives payments from Health AIDS Support Services, an HIV consulting firm currently working on a transaction with MTN and some state governments, as well as receives commission for brokering different deals on behalf of foreign companies and earns a sizeable commission therefrom.

Her husband, she claims received commission for the supply of 800 vehicles to Ogun State, has substantial investment in some Oil Blocks.

“The Petitioner has substantial investment in Glo Oil Ltd. And

Hyster Investments Ltd.”

She claims Gbenga has the capability to earn income because he is a “medical doctor with a Masters in Public Health and a PhD from John Hopkins University.

She says the Petitioner enjoys goodwill of being the son of the serving President of the largest black nation in the world, which gives him access to several eminent world political and business personalities all of which he has utilised and continues to

utilise and leverage upon to earn considerable income in all the states as well as in the public and private sectors of the Nigerian economy.

She lists her husband’s physical estates as “land in Maitama,

Abuja, land in Banana Island, Ikoyi, land in Lekki Phase 1, land in Abeokuta, a house in GRA Ikeja, Peugeot 607, Land Cruiser SUV 2006 model and a Kia Opirus among others.

She claims she became aware of the particulars of Gbenga’s income

as a result of “prior discussions” between them while they lived together.

As “ancillary relief” for the dissolution of the marriage, Mojisola asks the court for a permanent order directing the petitioner to pay a lump sum of N54 million for the maintenance of herself and the two children , Boluwatife and Wuraola, till the children attain adulthood.

She also seeks an order that the petitioner provide two of the cars owned by him for the Respondent and her children’s use together with a chauffeur to be paid by the petitioner; an order that the family house at No. 8, Ladipo Bateye Street, GRA Ikeja be settled on the respondent or in the alternative the petitioner be ordered to pay the sum of N50million to be used by the respondent to purchase a decent house of comparable standard for the accommodation of the respondent and her two children; and an order directing the petitioner to make adequate financial arrangement for provision of security for the two children of the marriage including adequate security safeguards for the premises where they will be residing, being grand children of the incumbent president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Mojisola is seeking a monthly payment of N300,000 for the period of 15 years or till the children attain adulthood.

She is also seeking that the Petitioner pay a lump sum of ?360,000 or its naira equivalent and $400,000 or its naira equivalent for the education of their two children of the marriage.

The sum of ?360,000, she claimed, would cover cost of school fees for a period of six years each for the two children at a secondary school in Switzerland already picked by their father, while $400,000 would be the cost of a four-year degree programme for both of the children in an American university.

But Gbenga fired back in a 50-paragraph fresh affidavit signed by Emankhu Addeh , of Addeh and Associates, legal practitioner for the petitioner.

It was in the tenth paragraph that he dropped the bomb that has now sent everybody into shock.

“The petitioner, Gbenga Obasanjo, further avers that he knows for a fact that the respondent, his wife, committed adultery with and had an intimate, sexual relationship with his own father, General Olusegun Obasanjo, due to her greed to curry favours and contracts from him in his capacity as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

He avers that the respondent also got rewarded for her adulterous acts with several oil contracts with the NNPC from his father, General Olusegun Obasanjo, amongst which was the NNPC consultancy training in supply chain management and project management awarded to her company, Bowen and Brown.”

The eighth paragraph says: “The petitioner avers that the respondent confided in him severally while they living together that she had been sexually abused and defiled by her father, Otunba Alex Onabanjo on several occasions.

He also claims that it was his bid to ‘forcefully put an end to this ignoble acts on the part of his father-in-law, Otunba Alex Onabanjo, that led to the total breakdown of relations between himself and Otunba Onabanjo.

Gbenga denies that he has since January 2006, stopped being responsible for the payment of school fees, books and other relevant materials and other needs of the two children as well as general expenses for their welfare and upkeep and avers that the Respondent normally collects from him on behalf of the children, monies to meet all the children needs but has refused to collect same this year despite several reminders and entreaties from the petitioner and the petitioner’s solicitor.

He has also averred that the children of the marriage reside and are in the custody at alternative times with both himself and his wife depending on whether they are in school or on holidays, and are also accessible to either party whilst in the custody of the other upon proper notification to either side. He denies that either party has exclusive custody of the two children of the marriage.

He also denies that Mojisola attends to the moral, religious and physical wellbeing of the two children, stating instead that her way of life and social conduct is so unbecoming that it would have a very negative moral and religious impact on the children if they are made to reside with her.

Gbenga avers that he has always met all the needs of the children of the marriage despite always having serious doubts about their actual paternity.

And on and on and, it will continue until the union is buried.

Even then it is doubtful if the last would ever be heard about Gbenga and Mojisola’s marriage as many questions raised in the petitions and counter-petitions have not yet been resolved.

Olugbenga Obasanjo has been known to be very outspoken in one or two public utterances he had made in the past.

He once cast doubts as to his father’s real age as well as on the integrity of some of the people who worked with him.

But it is his laying the blame for the collapse of his marriage on his father and father-in-law, Otunba Alex Onabanjo that has raised more than a few eyebrows.

All these are coming up just seven years after what was obviously the most spectacular wedding Archbishop Vining Memorial Church, Ikeja ever hosted.

The case continues, so does this spectacle.

If I were(may God forbid bad things from happening) in Gbenga’s shoes, I would rather put an end to the ‘thingy’ quietly – at least for the sake of the name and repute: Obasanjo.

Question:

1) Did Daddy Obasanjo sleep with his son’s wife?

2) Even if Daddy Obasanjo slept with his son’s wife, What does Gbenga Obasanjo hope to achieve by washing his dirty undies in public – the Nigerian public and the World-Wide Public?

  1. I found it very disgusting that both Gbenga and Mojisola are washing their dirty linen in the public. A medical doctor and a graduate of John Hopkings, this is very sad. As the chinese proverb says, you can buy books with money but you cannot buy intelligence. When did Gbenga realised that Mojisola was sleeping with her father and his father? Haba! Gbenga. It is now a case of “aso ko b’Omoye, Omoye ti rin hoho woja”

    I really don’t know of what to make from the vituperations emanating from the two parties. Given the standing of the dramatis personae, I believe there is a better way to handle this if Gbenga and Moji are sensible. Both of them have decided to dance naked in the market place. “Omo osan ti nko kondo ba iya e”

  2. Every day is for the thief, one day for the owner. Funny how nemesis catch up on people that feels they are perfect.it’s very senseless of the two thieves to have exposed themselves. Imagine this Nigerians…. OBASANJO and the forty thieves!!!

  3. (obo) the african black monkey in OTA, al’atenuje, ole has exposed himself and will continue to expose himself. Baba iyabo with all the money the family embezzled in the country; there’s more to be said….chop akara dey go, moi-moi no dey. Aj’atuka!! obasanjo,gbenga and the useless moji are a disgrace to the entire nation

  4. From my own point of view,gbenga is the most useless idiot ve ever seen.What were u doing and where were you when your father supposedly slept with your wife.If she actually told you in confidence that her father abused her before she got married…..why bring it out into the open,things she told you in confidance as a husband…………Gbenga is not a responsible man,medical doctor for that matter……….a literate illiterate………even if the whole country and some idiots are against your father…….its now your turn to stab him……….one thing l know is that,what supposedly happened, do happen and has happened in many homes all over the world….Gbenga is just foolishly, damn too stupid to put them in the papers…hes not a man at all….and one thing is that he will regret it………an adage says if you point a finger at someone, whatever the purpose might be…….the other fingers are pointing back at yourself…….Gbenga obasanjo…….go to hell!!!

    and to those crucifying obasanjo for this either it happened or not……check your closets.

  5. If Gbenga is actually doing his job as a man, husband and father……………his wife woulndt be sleeping around for money.

  6. its a shame that someone like laolu would be talking in this manner,first of all i would want u to put urself in gbengas shoes and know how it feels, if you have really been following this sacrcilegeouus act of obasanjo, without bias,u would know that the divorce proceeding made it public,how can u open your mouth and say stupid things,anybody that comits such sin like what obasanjo did needs to be hanged in public.i think u should just shut up and mind ur business,i dont know how else u want gbenga to do his job well as a father and a huspand for his wife to even succunb to have sex with her father inlaw, an older man and a blood relation for that matter,well i think u and obj are birds of the same feathers cos people like u would go the extra mile of sleeping with ur own daughter,its not a curse,well i leave u to your conscience to judge.

  7. This is the problem with Nigeria. How can anybody blame Gbenga for been angry. Only in Nigeria, will people blame the son. Tradition, respect for your elders; these were things taught to us as children but haven’t our elders let us down. Is it not time that we expose them for what they really are opportunists and greedy people using the name of tradition and culture to justify their deeds. Well, when a father stops looking at for the welfare of his children and starts creating severe emotional pains, then he loses his rights and the respect that should be afforded to an elder. He cannot have his cake and eat it. I am glad that Gbanga blew the whistle because like many parents and elders in Nigeria, my parents have used their elder status to oppress me which caused me severe emotional pain to the point of suicidal ideation. Yes, respect for elders and loyalty to your family is important but it is frequently abused in Nigeria. I hope that is one thing that comes out of this scandal.

  8. I have a question for Laolu – If such an ugly event should happen in your home, how would you react? Would you say mute and pretend all is well? What would you do?

    The issue is not whether Gbenga failed in ‘doing his job as a man, husband and father……’ like Laolu said, the issue is that Gbenga asserted that his biological father (Olusegun Obasanjo) had sex with his wife (Olusegun Obasanjo’s daughter-in-law). What a despicable act! By the way, there has been no denial from the ‘accussed parties’ (Olusegun Obasanjo and Mrs. Mojisola Gbenga Obasanjo).

    Rather than apportion blame, we should hold these people in prayers. God bless Nigeria!

  9. thank you Dee, now you’re talking. As much as Gbenga’s accusation is deeply dirty, I think the truth must be told, and the truth is somewhere.

    Let me answer your question: if such happened to me(God forbid), or to someone close to me, I won’t keep quiet. I’ll say it loud and clear. In fact, keeping such an act a secret can kill the person bearing the secret. There are some things that can be forgiven without being broadcasted to the public. There are other things that need to be broadcasted first before being forgiven.

    There are two things about this accusation: its either its true or a complete lie.

    1) If it is true, that Baba Obas slept with his daughter in-law, for whatever reaons that both of them(Baba Obas and Mojisola) may have had: either because of ‘lust gone wrong; Juliet made a mistake and slept with Romeo; intentional ‘we didnt know what we were doing until….’ or by mistake, rape or by coercion, if the sex was a requirement for a business/contract deal, whatever it is, O boy, there is no other way to modify the sentence and make it more positive – Gbenga just has to say it and say it loud and clear.

    Ofcourse, He should respect his parents, but also, if true, this just means that things have been messed up real bad before the news brought things out. Forget about whatever Gbenga has done, even if he is in another relationship himself(Im not supporting anyone here), whether he was a useless husband or not, but for Baba Obas to sleep with his daughter in-law, I’m sorry, its not forgivable. Some wrongs are more wrong than others. If swept under the carpet, then the whole realm of family morals is gone to the wind. The youths and children of nowadays are listening and are looking for a bad example. Are they going to find one?

    2) My own view is that our boy Gbenga definitely has a reason for saying such, and such reason is what the world wants to know. If he is telling the truth, then the wrong must be made right.

    If Gbenga’s mindset was to blackmail somebody(his father unfortunately), and tell a lie, then this lie has gone too far, he himself must be made to feel the shame of what he has done. With his statement, he has dragged not only his own name to the mud, but also, a Presidential surnname, a National surname which has gone into the history of the Nigerian people, and into the to the history of the World. 100- years from now, if a child is being taught about the history of Nigeria, the name Obasanjo would still be prominent, and how would it look like to say: the son of a former president accused his father of adultery. More than this, if Gbenga is lying out of his teeth and behind his suits, he has totally tarnished the reputation of his own children coz they will be the next generation to carry the name:Obasanjo. If he is lying, in fact, I would expect a national enquiry into the matter, and if Gbenga is found lying, he must make a public apology to the Nigerian people.

  10. I quite agree that Chief Obasanjo committed a terrible sin in the site of God and man-Gbenga.

    Condemning him this period is not the best.I think all of them need prayers and deliverance.”There’s joy in heaven when a sinner repents” God can still work in their lives.That marriage can work again in Jesus’ name.

    You that are condemning them,how many sins did you commit today? Be sincere to yourself.

  11. I sincerely believe that OBJ did no such thing OBJ is a lot of things but incest I seriously doubt. The guy is just angry because his father did not give him contracts. The results of the DNA test will confirm everything I am sure. If he is found lying, then what will happen? The guy to my mind is an attention seeker.

  12. too bad that such a family affair is been publised, anyway for us reading i think its an opportunity to examine ourselves.for Gbenga even if what you allege is true.how did you fist handle it with your dad. Even if you can’t forgive him,should you allow yourself to become a public disgrce to this nation.You and your pops are sowing a bad seed and a pray God will pardon this so your generations after you will not pay dearly for it

  13. I have heard the news and i am quite worried with how everything has turned out.Gbenga should not have washed his dirty linen in public while the two r bickering at each other has anyone thought about the children and how this may affect them psychologically in the future.Whether or not it happened thats not the issue cos noone is guilty until caught red handed.If Gbenga was aware of this act why did he keep mute after all these years.Its not a new thing that a father would sleep wit his daughter or daughter in law afterall some eastern parts of the country practise such where the wives r even aware.I would advise they kip thier stupid battle to themselves nd lets look for a way to move Nigeria forward.

  14. Olusegun Obasanjo should be publicly castrated for his unholy evil against his son. This is the only guarantee that he will not do such to other sons who have beautiful wives. ….. Ademola Paul (Photographer, Lagos)

  15. lit us not put too much sentiments on this issue. There are lots of crazy things going on quietly among the household of the rich and its just that this had to come out because the situation went out of control.It (for me) should not be seen as a national issue except if the present government wants to revoke the contract or ban this family from contract execution.

    Nigeria is isnking, pls help savage the situation. Obasanjo is past, lets face the present.

    Nigeria is sinking, pls help savage the situation. Obasanjo is past, lets face the present.

  17. Until the country embrace the use of the God of tunder and sango, as a guide towards accountability before the country can have peace.Sango and ara should be programmed in such a way that, as soon as any public officer think of misusing public office, he or she should be strucked by it. This is the way foward.

  18. Are we all aware of the negative impacts in which we are projecting the image of the country?By their fruits we shall know them.

  19. what could be worse than when a father tells the world….I am not sure I am the father of my children

    In what appears to be a messy divorce between Gbenga Obasanjo, son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, and his estranged wife, Mojisola Olayemisi Amope, the first son of the former president has dropped a bombshell on his father’s alleged sexual intimacy with his wife, Moji. Gbenga not only accused his own father and Nigeria’s former president of having sex with his wife before awarding contracts to her, but also alleged that his wife’s father, Otunba Alex Onabanjo and other men slept with her.

    This shocking revelation is contained in an affidavit he submitted to the court in response to a messy divorce case already in court.

    Gbenga’s celebrated marriage to Moji, which took place at the Archbishop Vinning Memorial Church, Ikeja, in April, 2000, headed for the rocks barely four years after the lovebirds exchanged marital vows.

    Moji had allegedly deserted her matrimonial home on 2 December, 2004 and never returned until this messy divorce battle that is bound to ruffle many feathers.

    According to the affidavit signed on behalf of Gbenga Obasanjo by his counsel, Emankhu Addeh of Addeh & Associates, “The petitioner (Gbenga) avers that the respondent (Moji) confided in him severally while they were living together (sic) that she had been sexually abused and defiled by her father, Otunba Alex Onabanjo on several occasions.

    “The petitioner avers that it was his bid to forcefully put an end to this ignoble acts on the part of his father-in-law, Otunba Alex Onabanjo, that led to the total breakdown of relations between himself and Otunba Onabanjo.

    “The petitioner further avers that he knows for a fact that the respondent committed adultery with and had an intimate, sexual relationship with his own father, General Olusegun Obasanjo, in order to get contracts from the government.

    “The petitioner avers that the Respondent also got rewarded for her adulterous acts with several oil contracts with the NNPC from his father, General Olusegun Obasanjo, amongst which was the NNPC Consultancy training in supply chain management and project management awarded to her company Bowen and Brown.

    “The petitioner avers that lurid sexual relationship of the Respondent with her own father, Otunba Alex Onabanjo and his father General Olusegun Obasanjo, has brought him great pain and psychological trauma and is the primary reason for the breakdown of his marriage to the Respondent.

    “The petitioner avers that the respondent while married to him was also committing adultery with one Mr. Olumide Ogunlesi.

    “The petitioner avers that the Respondent shamelessly carried on her sexual escapades without any thought as to the psychological effect of same on him.”

    Gbenga further stated in the affidavit that the paternity of the two children that are the product of his marriage to Moji was in doubt, considering the alleged multiple sexual relationships she had with several men.

    Consequently, Gbenga is opting for a DNA test to be conducted to ascertain who really is the father of the children.
    “The petitioner avers that it is now necessary for a court ordered DNA test to be carried out on both himself, Otunba Alex Onabanjo and General Olusegun Obasanjo by a competent independent medical laboratory chosen by the court, in order to ascertain the actual paternity of the children of the marriage as the continued uncertainty about their actual paternity is making his life a misery.

    “The petitioner avers that the actual father of the children of the marriage will be found amongst himself, Otunba Alex Onabanjo and General Olusegun Obasanjo and same must be addressed immediately.

    “The petitioner avers that it is pertinent that this is done before further deliberations in this matter as the issue of the children’s paternity is integral to the determination of the suit and must thus be resolved and laid to rest urgently.”

    Source: My Father made love to my wife, Gbenga Obasanjo

    Im thinking: whats the difference between ‘making love to’, ‘sleeping with’, and ‘having sex with’…….

  20. i read this news with absolute disgust and hatred for these fathers both OBJ and ALEX O, how shameful of them , thats if the allegations by Gbenga is true which obvioulsy is cos until now there has no been any denial or response from these accused. or thet want to fool us that they are taking the matter as an adult…….nigerains are quite analytical and one of the most intelligent set of people in the world..so we cant be fooled. i know women have more worth than what this Mojisola is making them look like ..she is such a whore cos obviosuly her affidavit has said nothing whatsoever in this accusation
    infact …we must all pray to God for our real wives …

  21. and come to think of it the idiot and frog faced obasanjo is a student of theology at the open university …hmmm….i hope no church is gonna put this motherfucker on the pulpit

  22. This is a real blow to the obj family,
    and I think all parties in question a out of their minds, its such a disgracefull act on the part of the fathers but nevertheless the stupid Son( Gbenga) so have just paid the money the lady needed and kept his gap shut!
    there are some stories that are meant to be settled within the family and not for the public…
    I think everyone in question are greedy fools…and Gbenga should stop ridiculing his father like that because afterall he made him the Gbenga for the news…
    on the other hand I think God made Gbenga Obasanjo stupid so he can show to the world how messedup his father his…Obasanjo therefore is not only the man the ruin Nigeria the more also the phyco father that you need to keep your wife very far from.
    God Help Us all

  24. This is unblieveable that a father-in-law could sleep with his son’s wife in this modern world. It’s a criminal offence and punishable in the court of law. I think if Olusegun Obasanjo has good money, he can buy whatever he likes but not moral! This whole event should be a lesson to all of us to critically understand the type of family to marry from. Moral, pride and contentment are essential qualities in life which Olusegun Obasanjo lacks and this can never be given to them because they have lost their opportunities many times and God is not foolish. To climb a ladder to reach apex in life is not easy but to fall down from that high level is just a twinkle of an eye. I am terribly sorry for Olusegun Obasanjo and family for they don’t know what’s ahead of them but if they are wise enough, they should run and hide under the grace of God so that when the full wrath comes, ofcourse, they will loose all but they can have a place in heaven if they are saved by His grace. Once a president is always a leader to be reckoned with. Let Nigerians pray for the Olusegun Obasanjo’s family for God’s deliverance and forgiveness.

    May God bless Nigeria, my state (Ogun) and bless me as a person, so that my community, state and Nigeria at large will feel my impact possitively. Amen.

  25. They say when two elephants fight it is the rgound that suffers…. it is sad that two innocent children are going to have to live with the burden of all this.

  26. Gbenga, you have to forgive, though you can’t forget, I pray that God will give you the strenght.
    Hold on to Him.
    Femi

  27. its really surprising,but the whole idea of life is not considered by any of you.just know that “if the going get touched,it is only the touched that get going”.

  28. There is no doubt saying that OBJ is an APE. Do you know why?
    can you remember social study of those days? can you remember that we always have argument over how human beings are being formulated? then u can now see that both God creation and ape generation is right. OBJ, MOJI, AND THE SO CALL ALEX Onabanjo are from the Ape. I suppose you to know the characteristics of ape. ok, ape sleeps with the father, mother, daughter, son, in laws aunties uncles and even hold on to the unborn babies to defy. it’s quite unfortunate that Gbega is born of baba iyabo and who knows how many time baba must have slept with his daughter. I mean the unfortunate Senator. hahaha. boda gbenga, keep a close eye on them as u can now see that u are no longer in thier field. for those of u hat does not know and understand gbenga’s feelings, i think u should go ahead and push ur partners to sleep with their fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters in law.

  29. THIS STORY IS TOO OLD TO BE ON SCREEN…
    THOUGH IT WAS A USEFUL INFORMATION AT THE TIME WHICH WAS NEW BUT NOW IT’S BORING AND WENT DEAD..

    GBENGA IS THE OWNER OF HIS FATHER AND HIS FATHER OWNS HIM… WE SHOULD STOP WASTING OUR TIME..MOJI’S ISSUE CAN’T SEPARATE FATHER FROM SON…ALSO EVERYONE OF US HAS OUR OWN FAMILLY ISSUES

    ITS NO LONGER A NEWS, THIS BEAUTIFUL WEBSITE SHOULD GIVE US ANOTHER LATEST NEWS NO MORE GBENGA’S STORIES!!!! PLEASE.

  30. Support, care and appreciations are some of the qualities that have kept us together despite distance or time. I cannot thank you all enough for your honest and sincere contributions towards, the Gbenga Obj Obasanjo’s issue, The young man was devastated but at the moment he has picked up courrage to endorsed the future with positive heart..by educating this generation regarding general issue affecting our country nigeria.
    Moreso,he has forgiving the past by embarassing the fact that forgiveness is a gift of life.
    Once again, thank you all. God bless Nigeria..
    BIG HUG AND KISSES FOR EVERYONE!!!

  31. I FEEL VERY SORRY FOR GBENGA. ACCORDING TO EDO PROVERB, MY HOME PLACE WHICH I CHERISH FOR ITS CULTURAL VALUES, IT IS BETTER NOT TO HAVE A POCKET, THAN TO HAVE ONE WITH A HOLE AT THE BOTTOM. GBENGA SHOULD DENOUNCE HIS FATHER OUT-RIGHT. HE SHOULD DEMAND PATERNITY TESTS FOR BOTH CHILDREN. PEOPLE THAT WERE BORN WITH SILVER SPOONS IN THEIR MOUTHS DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE THEM. SOME ONE SHOULD TELL MOJISOLA TO TAKE A LOOK AT ANY BUS-STOP IN NIGERIA AND MAY BE SHE WILL NOTICE HOW MANY BEAUTIFUL WOMEN ARE SUFFERING. SHE IS DEMANDING MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. OLE! SHE SHOULD BE FLOGGED PUBLICLY FOR COMMITTING ADULTERY. WHO KNOWS HOW MANY OTHER MEN ARE OUT THERE THAT HAVE MADE “YEYE” OUT OF WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE HER SACRED REPRODUCTIVE ORGAN TO HUSBAND AND HER HUSBAND ALONE. YEYE DEY SMELL. AJE BUTTER. OYINBO PEOPLE WE DEY THINK SAY THEM NO GET CULTURE, NOT DEY DO THIS MUCH. I WISH WAS IN THE LOOP MUCH MORE EARLIER THAN THIS, SHE WHOULD HAVE SEEN PEPPER.

  32. @ jimmy…. i cant stop laughing on ur comment about the use of the african lesser GODs such as sango and ara to serve as witnesses politician swear to when coming into public office… it might work u know….cause this is what this motherfuckers believe in, in the first place..all these there going to churches and mosques are just mere disguise.. again jimmy ur one great philosopher with what u just advocated lol…

  33. It is very and ridiculously hard to believe. If at the end of the day it turns out to be true, it is the most expensive joke of the 21st century. Power and money had not in any form or shape beneficial the OBJs cos they are living in the world of their own.”Eniyan buruku ekeji ara e” that is to say “a wicked person is a partner of himself so to speak.

    We all need to take a leave from this ugly and abominable saga that has become the talk of the world. This showed what OBJ are made of or what kind of man who was privileged to have ruled Nigeria not once but twice, he is. He and his partner in crime never been good role models one could have prayed for. Let them go to hell.

  34. Really, Mr Gbenga is not suppose to disclose secret abt his dad n wifey. Buh i fil his pain n cud imagyn wat He is going tru.
    The wife is jst acting as if she married mr Gbenga because of his reputation!

  35. If actually he did it, then he should be thrown into exile and never to come back. I have gone through all the comments here and some are blaming Gbenga. Well for all I know Gbenga was not there. And that is why u should scrutinize a woman b4 anything. Know what she is capable of doing. If am a judge I will crucify Mojisola. Believe me if really she concented to Baba Obj’s proposal then we should look into her very well becos she must be a devil in disguise. Except both of them (OBJ & Mojisola) have a skeleton in their cupboard. (i.e. they both know where the witch is crying from) even if Obj asked or forced her to do something like that, couldn’t she have reported to the husband? OBJ have succeeded in making every politicians his godson and now u want to make ur daughter-inlaw what? Was that what ur people (cults) asked u to do? SHAME! I heard someone saying Gbenga was angry becos his father refused to give him money. HABA! Gbenga wouldn’t have gone this far. My people do u know the implications of this dirty act? He would have looked for something else to nail his father and not this dispeakable act. Well am not surprised, our country is becoming worse than Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible days. Obasanjo and Mojisol is a big and mighty SHAME to our world. Obj, is a shame that your grey hair has brought disgrace to manhood. Mojisola you are disgrace to womanhood. I didn’t know u (mojisola) are that cheap. Can you now agree with me that “NOTHING IS HIDDEN UNDER THE SUN”? THE EVIL THAT MEN DO LIVES WITH THEM. Disgrace of the Highest Century.

  36. im not suprised, that is what those cultis do to renew thei spritual vows,are the two fathers not freemasons?

  37. THIS ISSUE IS A VERY DIRTY WHICH SHOULD BE RESOLVED AMONG THE COUPLES QUEITLY AND PRIVATELY AMONG THE TWO . THANKS
