Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has finally broken his silence on the crashed marriage between his son, Olujuwon and the daughter of his friend, a prominent philanthropist, Chief Kesington Adebutu.
Kemi Filani News reports that this is the first time he is speaking on the issue after it happened two years ago. The children of the two prominent Nigerians got married in May 2017 but later broke up nearly one year later.
Speaking during the conferment of first honorary member on Adebutu at the 45th President’s party of Abeokuta Sports Club, Obasanjo, who handled the conferment on Adebutu on behalf of the club, said their children got married of their own volition hence, he and his friend should not be made to pay for the consequence of the crashed marriage.
He said, “The honoree of today has rendered marvelous services to Egbaland. The Park Inn, which is the old Gateway Hotel, would have still remained in derelict if not for the services, commitment of the honoree.
“One thing you never said about him and I wonder why the citation left that out, you know not too long ago my son and your daughter on their own decided to get married but what happened to their marriage is between them, not between us.”
