While speaking in an exclusive interview with The Sun newspaper, Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo the wife of former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, poured more fuel on the raging fire on the marriage controversy between the daughter of Chief Kessington Adebutu and the son of Olujonwo Obasanjo, a son of former president.
Here are excerpts from the chat;
Why did you take your son to court in order to stop his wedding?
I am not a mad woman and the young man we are talking about is my firstborn and my only son. I have two children, a male and a female. It has been my desire for him to get married and I get to see his children. My second child is married with children too, so it is my strongest desire to see him marry and have children. I will tell you the history of his birth.
This boy is not an accidental birth, he is not a child I woke one day, and told my husband that I was pregnant. I went through some delay and there were prophecies that he would come and we should name him Abraham. I respect the prophecies of God too much and before the arrival of this girl that he is supposed to marry, we were warned that whenever the time came for him to marry, he should not marry with fanfare. We were told he should not have any elaborate celebration until after his 34th birthday.
Strangely enough, no wedding came up until he is about to clock 34 on the first of June and we were warned that any elaborate thing should be done after his 34th birthday. I am not saying that there should be no wedding. Before this girl came into the scene there was a prophecy that foretold that this girl would come to cause problem. We have been warned that he should just marry quietly and go home. You see he didn’t go and court this girl. My twin brother who has now turned to a Judas and a Goliath controlling both families introduced this girl to him. He is the one fueling the problems.
Initially, my son said he wasn’t interested in the girl because she is so fat and that he wanted a slim person. After a year, I didn’t hear anything again and I went to see this girl. To see how she looked and I saw her and told him that she would slim down. But he insisted that after having children, she would balloon the more, but I convinced him that my mother too is robust. I told the girl that I would go and pray about it; that maybe God would touch his heart and change his mind about it. He didn’t consent initially. Immediately he accepted, I introduced him to the father and not that he courted her. He didn’t court her at all. When the marriage issue came up I went to Tope’s mother, Rosemary Da Costa. Tope is the only child of the mother. I went to talk to her and explain to her the prophecy we received long before the daughter came on board. I told the mother and her daughter that we should defer the elaborate wedding till after June, but they refused.
What about Obasanjo, how does he feel about this issue?
He is under a spell. Kenny Martins is the one controlling him and controlling the Adebutu family. The girl is an only child and she doesn’t have any other child but to her the marriage is more important than the future of these children. Rosemary Dacosta and her daughter have openly displayed utter contempt for the warnings of Jehovah for the life of my son Olujonwo. And Kenny Martins supports all these too. This is sheer open display of wicked arrogance and they have laid a powerful siege on the life of my son, Olujonwo. It is very strange to me because the marriage ceremony is only for two days and their future is there forever. You see it is not a wedding they are having because of the intensity of their preparation. The way they have been cooperating with my son since I said I was edging out because I wouldn’t be a part of any wedding that comes up in May; they were very happy. This girl now is the one picking aso ebi for the Obasanjo family; she is the one dictating to everybody. They want me to be a spectator.
What was the relationship with your son before the wedding issue came up?
It was okay before the wedding. In fact, the young man is a man any mother, father or person would want to have as a child. He is a good man. He is caring. He is respectful, he is not confrontational and he is not abusive.
What is your relationship like with him now?
The relationship is just there because he has allowed himself to be turned to Ileya ram. You know Ileya ram is always pulled anyhow. You see everybody is cooperating with him to disobey God so that they can implement their own agenda.
