She wrote a book about the problems that they went through. She had a terrible time when he was head of state. That (the problems) might be the reason why she didn't play the role of first lady.

Obasanjo's duties as president for eight years were:

Removing governors
Removing Senate presidents
Killing civilians in Zaki biam and Odi
Giving shoot at sight orders

Cracking jokes

They had divorced before 1999. It was a very stormy marriage.


(The reason that I remember the issue of the divorce is because of the crazy rumour that was circulating back then grin. The rumour was that Obasanjo appeared in court for the divorce proceedings and he was asked if he wanted to swear with the bible or Quran and he replied that he would prefer to swear with a cutlass because he was a traditional religionist. I'm much older now and I don't think the rumour is true).

She wrote a book about her problems and suffering when Obasanjo was head of state and I read a bit of the book in the 2000s.


Basically she said that Obasanjo had two wives, Oluremi and Stella, but he had a lot of affairs with other women and it was those affairs that caused the problems.

She named some of the women in that book, while she described the ones that she didn't name and she described them in a way that people would know who they were.


She wrote about the times that he brought women to stay in the guest houses at State House Dodan Barracks, the many fights that they had over the children (Obasanjo once sent the children to a boarding school in Kaduna, so that she won't have access to them. She flew to Kaduna and almost fought the principal of the school. She took the children and brought them back to Lagos).

She filed for divorce in 1976, but MD Yusufu (the inspector general of police) convinced her to withdraw the suit because the Murtala Government was still young and it would embarrass the government. It was Murtala and Yusufu that usually settled the quarrels.

She wrote about the time that Obasanjo had an affair with the principal of Queens College, while her daughter, Iyabo, was a student of the school. She said that Iyabo attacked the principal.


She also wrote about the divorce. She said that she has heard many people talk about the divorce, but she was not served any papers, neither did she know of any divorce proceedings. She said that she believed that Obasanjo rigged the divorce.


You might notice that she did not act as first lady when Obasanjo was head of state. Instead, wives of other government functionaries and female members of government acted as hostess during state visits, for example when Jimmy Carter visited Nigeria in 1978.

(By the way, Olusegun Obasanjo was already married to Stella Abebe when he was head of state).

How many of you heard the story of
Obasanjo
His father,
Their church in Abeokuta and the
The Igbo Trader
that sold a piano for OBJ's father church and OBJ was used as a collateral to work with the igbo trader for 2 years just to pay for the piano on behalf of the church.
All these happened when he was less than 12 years old.
And it ended well for everyone involved, OBJ, His father, their church and the Igbo Trader.....

But the story did not end there.......
It is still ongoing till this present day.
