“You’re Bloody Idiots ”, Obasanjo Blasts Vanguard Newspaper
President Olusegun Obasanjo was very
furious when approached by Vanguard on Wednesday over the letter that is
purportedly written by his daughter, Iyabo, to him as he hurled invectives at the newspaper's man called him on the phone.
The exchange between Vanguard and Chief Obasanjo ran thus:
Vanguard: Sir, we tried reaching you all
through yesterday, to no avail, over the letter written by your daughter, Iyabo, to you.
Chief Obasanjo: You are a bloody idiot,
you have published the paper and you are now looking for me, you are an idiot, don't call me again. When Iyabo finishes you in court…. (hangs up).
But why did Iyabo "wrote such a wicked letter" to her dad?
According to Vanguard, Senator Iyabo
Obasanjo has confirmed to them that she indeed wrote the letter and she said her father's associates and friends should take it as her own way of getting back to him. Very sad!
She reacted against the background of
mixed reactions from elders and notable politicians on the import of the letter which she said is her last communication with her father.
