Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has cleared the air on his meeting with the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Otunba Gani Adams.
They met at the residence of the Afenifere chief, Chief Ayo Adebanjo.
While some have said the meeting was for reconciliation, Obasanjo said it wan not.
He noted in a statement on Wednesday:
“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.”
