My Daughter Said I Won't Make It Out of Aso Rock Alive- Obasanjo

Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo said that his eldest daughter, Iyabo Obasanjo told him that he will die in office if he contest for the presidential seat in 1999.

Iyabo told OBJ that if he die in office, she won’t weep for him. Obasanjo revealed this in his book, MY WATCH.

In his words, “My mind was almost made up (to vie for the position of President) but I had to consult with my children. I got four of them together in New York.

I told them I was going to decide whether to go into politics or not. Iyabo was the most antagonistic.She burst out loudly, ‘I know you will join and you will die there and if you die, I will not weep.’I told her ‘if I die and you weep, it is for yourself and others, not for me as I will not know you are weeping.

“It is ironic that within 10 years, Iyabo became a Senator and I completed two terms of eight years without a scratch.”

The former president said only Segun Obasanjo encouraged him.

“Daddy, you have always said that we must serve God and humanity and if this is the way you have chosen to serve God and humanity, I will pray for you.” he wrote.

Last year, Iyabo wrote an open letter to her dad, accusing him of  orchestrating a third term for himself as president, being cruel to family members, as well as abandonment of children and grandchildren.
