You are the only ex-President who fights his wives and children – Obasanjo’s ex-wife
An ex-wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Taiwo, has tackled him for noting days ago that she was mentally unstable. Obasanjo had indicated in response to a statement she issued apologising to some Oyo monarchs over how he publicly punished them for not standing when he and Governor Seyi Makinde arrived at an event in the state.
Reacting in a statement, Taiwo said Obasanjo was always trying to suppress others, adding he was the only former President who fought his family.
She argued in a statement on Friday:
“My attention has been drawn to a statement credited to President Olusegun Obasanjo in which he called me an impostor and raised a lot of issues beneath his status, including telling the world that my mental health is questionable.
“For the records; I want the world to know that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is the greatest impostor of all time, the liar, the deceiver who now equates himself to the Almighty God and who now arrogantly believes that he has the unchallengeable power of life and death and to render totally useless whoever tries to point out any error of his or doesn’t agree to any of his rigid almighty posture of methodology in handling issues.
“Once Daddy Obasanjo sees you as his perceived enemy who will not dance to his tune 100%, he would go all out to destroy you. He would do all within his highly toxic evil network to destroy whoever offers a word of respectful caution to him
From a very poor humble beginning, God gave Daddy Obasanjo all that anyone could ever want in life and took him to the pinnacle in the Army and the government of Nigeria.
“Since you left Dodan Barracks, you have been fighting all Presidents who came after you, seeing, talking, addressing them as no good. You have rubbished, abused, insulted, criticized, humiliated, fought, and ridiculed every President who came to power. Are you the only ex–President we have in Nigeria? All our former Presidents, General Babangida, General Abdulsalami, General Yakubu Gowon, Dr Goodluck Jonathan etc. they do not fight their children or wives nor ridicule people here and there in our nation. All our former Presidents in Nigeria comport themselves with dignity, they don’t fight nor rubbish every successive President we have like you do”, she stated.
Am I stable?
“In his ignoble statement, Daddy Obasanjo said, ‘It must be noted that the state of health of Ms. Martins is known to all and sundry…’
“Well, it must be noted that any leader like you who justifies indecency, the humiliation of leaders, talks and acts like a tout or an area boy with uncouth mannerisms, shows us his mental state that he is mentally deranged and there are more than enough evidence from your behaviour and public utterances.
For the records, my mental state is in perfect condition. I salute you sir, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, the Great Legend of Hell tormenting Nigeria and Africa. It is because l voluntarily left you which no wife of yours has ever done, that you want me insane or bedridden. Many times you have done the unimaginable to me, crippled all my business ventures and tried to label me insane, but God made me to triumph over all your schemings. That l am still alive is a great sorrow to you. That l am still breathing without one naira from you is still a great pain and sorrow to you.
“Have you not begged me many times in the past to come back to you? Yet, you query the state of my mental health. You loved me very much in the past, to the extent of even beating your first wife in the house because she insulted me. It is still very painful to you that l left you and l am still alive. God has kept me. When l couldn’t cope, I ran out and left your home because you were too pushing me mad. Didn’t you take me round several houses you own that l should pick one and live there instead of departing from your life completely? Didn’t you also bring a car to me which l returned to you? All these l did when l told you l didn’t want to have anything to do with you again. Didn’t you make me sit down publicly on your lap at the commissioning of your farm for the press to take photos of us and the photo was all over Nigeria in all the newspapers?
“It is said hell hath no fury as a woman scorned but it is appropriate to say hell hath no fury like an ex–President scorned and now your ego is brutally scorned and deeply hurt because l left you and you are now humiliating yourself not me.
“By the way can you provide the world with the evidence that the one you put in your house now as your ‘Mrs’, that you paid any bride price or took her to court to marry? She is simply answering your name because it is convenient for you. How many wives of yours did you marry officially with all marriage ceremonies performed? Please tell the world.
“I repeat again with all respect to you sir that you are the impostor, who like Satan is masquerading as a solution to problems which you have created for us in Nigeria and Africa.
You are the real problem, troubling the land of Nigeria, the people of Nigeria, troubling families and homes and the society at large. God gave you a long life, and good health made you famous, gave you wealth, and made you three times President of Nigeria, yet you couldn’t give us beautiful roads and 18 or 24-hour electricity which others could build on. All you do is fight, fight, fight every President who comes to power after you instead of embracing them as your loving children to be mentored, supported and guided by you to give us excellent service that will bring comfort to us all in the whole nation.
“The only leaders you couldn’t cage or render impotent in Africa are the current Presidents of Nigeria, Tinubu and that of Rwanda, Paul Kagame.
I am using this medium also to plead with Nigerians to help President Tinubu to succeed so that Nigeria can be turned into another beautiful Kigali in Rwanda
“Can you stand before God Almighty to say you did not rig PDP into power in the South West and other states, fraudulently removing Ex–Governor Osoba and others out of power with power of incumbency because you were then the President? It was only the current President Tinubu – then governor of Lagos State you couldn’t bring down and God is still making Tinubu to triumph over you publicly. Power belongs to God not you. Why now are you claiming the 2023 election was flawed? Why do you want to create 3rd world war in Nigeria because Peter Obi didn’t win?
“Please Charly Boy, Donald Duke, Sahara Reporters, the youths of Nigeria and others – l appeal to you humbly – don’t join forces with Daddy Olusegun Obasanjo again to bring war and chaos into Nigeria to remove President Tinubu. God gave the Presidency to Tinubu, not man. Daddy Olusegun Obasanjo was made President in 1999 by the North. Generals Babangida, Abdulsalami my twin brother, Chief Kenny Martins and many others provided you with the money, the people, the support nationally and internationally and all the needed resources and platforms to become President and you betrayed them all. You rewarded them with evil. Ex–President Obasanjo treated them all very, very badly. He didn’t win the election. When he now wanted 3rd term, God shoved the evil, ungrateful Obasanjo out. Today he will not allow us to breathe. I also prayed and fasted for you not to die.
At close to 90 years of age you are heaping great insults, contemptuously correcting highly revered Kings in our Yoruba land as if they were worthless.
“It was because l left you and to spite me that you went to bring the woman you are now parading as your Missus. Absolute rubbish! When she is sinking in sorrow because she dares not complain? When l advised you to bring all your wives together for a meeting, so that we can know one another and you listened and you brought us together with your first wife in attendance, you didn’t bring your current Mrs to the family meeting even though she has had her one child for you then. Which wife can truly say she has not seen hell in your hands? They cannot talk because you will strike them and the child they have for you off from your will.
“Before l round off, l want to beg again for forgiveness from all the Oyo kings, Council of Kings, Yoruba Council Worldwide and the entire Yoruba race worldwide.
“Please, l am humbly appealing again, don’t take out vengeance on any of us, my children, myself or my lineage all because of the neurotic humiliating, deeply hurtful behaviour of Baba Obasanjo.
“All the families of Baba Obasanjo are afraid of him. Please l humbly and genuinely plead with the Yoruba race world wide – forgive us.
“Everyone can see how he came out to prove to the world his true self by his ill-thought reaction to my humble appeal to the kings for forgiveness”.
