Exposed! President Jonathan’s Aide Authored Iyabo Obasanjo’s Letter To Dad-The source of a purported letter allegedly sent from the daughter of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Iyabo has been revealed as it has now emerged that and aide to President Goodluck Jonathan is actually the brain behind the letter.
According to a revelation by elomba.com online news forum, an aide to the president Goodluck Jonathan wrote the letter and forged Iyabo’s signature.
The controversial letter letter on had been made exclusively available to Vanguard Newspaper, and in recent reactions meant to preserve the pride of the newspaper, it has insisted that it was maintaining its stand that Iyabo Obasanjo was the author.
In the letter which has generated hot controversy and which many sworn enemies Obasanjo clan had exploited, insulting and deliberately damaging the reputation of both the former president and his daughter, Iyabo had been presented to describe her father as a liar, manipulator, megalomaniac, narcissistic, two-faced hypocrite determined to foist on President Goodluck Jonathan what no one would contemplate with him as president. She was presented to have ruled out further communication with her father till death.
Presenting a reaction from Iyabo, which appeared on emn-news.com on Thursday, many sworn enemies of the former president debunked Iyabo’s reaction and pitched camp with the derogatory and degrading daughter to father letter, claiming that Iyabo could not have denied the earlier letter which allegedly emanated from her to her father.
However, an impeccable source has told elombah.com that while it is true that the thoughts might reflecte in the letter are Iyabo’s, Jonathan’s aide actually penned the letter.
“Go through the letter again and compare with some of the journalist’s past work and you will see that the way he writes is reflected in the Iyabo letter”, he claimed.
Asked for clarification in view of the fact that the first daughter of the former President, Iyabo, is said to have refused entreaties by family members, friends and political leaders to withdraw her statement disparaging her father, the source which craved anonymity explained that Iyabo and the aide had been close friends over the years, and Iyabo had also complained to him about her father and had severally threatened to expose him.
“Iyabo Obasanjo and President Jonathan’s aide-author of the letter, long been best of friends and the latter had always confided in the Journalist her bitterness with her father”, our source said, and added that “Iyabo had been planning to expose her father, but had been stopped from doing so all these while by the aide whom we were told, told her not to do it so as not to deepen the family crisis and wash their dirty linens in the public, an advise which Iyabo had since kept.”
However following the acidic letter to his boss, the aide we gathered had to put pen to paper all that Iyabo had told him in the course of their previous conversations and sent it across via mail to her for her perusal.
Having gone through the letter, our source stated that she sent it to Vanguard editor, who was initially shocked at the content but still went to press with the publication. A call we gathered was also put across to her, where she agreed that the content of the letter be made public.
Multiple sources further told elombah.com that President Goodluck Jonathan’s aides had earlier met in the Presidential Villa on how to attack the former President who wrote the controversial letter titled ‘Before It’s not too late’. Some of the agreement reached we gathered was to hit Obasanjo below the bet using his close family members.
In the 11-page open letter, Iyabo Obasanjo, a former senator of the Federal Republic, painted a very unwholesome intimate portrait of Nigeria’s leader, accusing him “of having an egoistic craving for power and living a life where only men of low esteem and intellect thrive.”
And to dismiss insinuations and other reports in the social media that she was not the author of the statement, Iyabo is currently insisted yesterday that she did not tell anybody to deny the statement on her behalf.
“Nobody can say that I told him that I didn’t write it. I am not a liar. I will not back away from what I wrote and there is nothing that is there that is a lie,” Iyabo was quoted as having told Vanguard.
She disclosed that she decided to break away from her father after realising that he cannot change from his manipulative person she had known all along, adding that throughout last year she did not speak with her father. She started speaking with him recently.
“The last time I spoke to him was three days ago and I decided that I was not going to speak to him again after that. That was the communication through which I realised that this man would never change from manipulations for himself,” Iyabo told the paper.
Senator Iyabo Obasanjo, who is in the United States, has so far rejected various entreaties by friends and family members to deny the statement by refusing to carry her telephone calls.
In the damning statement, Iyabo accused her father of orchestrating a third term for himself as president, cruelty to family members, abandonment of children and grandchildren, and also, a legendary reputation of maltreatment of women, including the mother.
Iyabo also foreclosed further political engagements in Nigeria. She denied any political motive for her missive, and described Nigeria as a country where her father and his ilk have helped to create a situation where smart, capable people bend down to imbeciles to survive.
“For you to accuse someone else of what you so obviously practiced yourself tells of your narcissistic megalomaniac personality. Everyone around for even a few minutes knows that the only thing you respond to is praise and worship of you,” she wrote in reference to Obasanjo’s letter dated 2 December to President Goodluck Jonathan.
However, a legal observer in London describe the revelation in elomba.com as a pre-meditated move to authenticate the letter and still do a linkage to Iyabo.
“This is a media spin attempt to adduce all content of the letter which is a forgery to Iyabo Obasanjo as sources are set to reveal the real author and in order to still authenticate the letter, the story is being put up. It is a real fact that the author of the letter is a professional scammer and impersonator who should be arrested and charged immediately”, the source said.
According to the legal expert, the letter’s author has been portrayed by elomba.com as a legally authorised impersonator who was doing the right thing by presenting a fake letter as real from iyabo.
“How can you claim that because Iyabo is not picking her phone she is authenticating the ownership. This is very ridiculous and disgraceful as many media forum will go a long way to defend illegality and falsehood. Iyabo may decide to stay away from controversy because she is consulting her legal advisers. Claiming that she is not picking the phone has been indicative of her authenticating the letter is very disgraceful”, the source said.
