Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo says the crashed marriage between his son, Olujuwon and the daughter of his friend, a prominent philanthropist, Chief Kesington Adebutu, has nothing to do with him or their friendship.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the children of the two prominent Nigerians got married in May 2017 but later broke up nearly one year later.

Speaking on Saturday during the conferment of first honorary member on Adebutu at the 45th President’s party of Abeokuta Sports Club, Obasanjo said their children got married of their own volition, hence, he and his friend should not be made to pay for the consequence of the crashed marriage.

Obasanjo, who handled the conferment on Adebutu on behalf of the club, broke his silence two years after the marriage crumbled. He said:

“The honoree of today has rendered marvelous services to Egbaland. The Park Inn, which is the old Gateway Hotel, would have still remained in derelict if not for the services, commitment of the honoree.

“One thing you never said about him and I wonder why the citation left that out, you know not too long ago my son and your daughter on their own decided to get married but what happened to their marriage is between them, not between us.”
