Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has disowned ’wife’ Mrs Taiwo Martins who apologised and on his behalf.

Mrs Taiwo had issued a statement where she apologised to Yoruba Obas over Obasanjo’s remarks against them.

But in a statement by the Special Assistant on Media to the former president, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Monday said, “for the records, Ms. Martins has two children, Jonwo and Bunmi, for Chief Obasanjo but to say emphatically that she is not his wife nor a member of the Obasanjo family.

“Her posturing as Chief Obasanjo’s wife is false and that of an impostor. Nobody makes statement on behalf of the Obasanjo family except Chief Obasanjo or people delegated by him to do so.

“It must be noted that the state of health of Ms. Martins is known to all and sundry and whatever she says or does has nothing to do with Chief Obasanjo as an individual or the Obasanjo family as a whole.”

However, the former President has affirmed that he stood firmly, unapologetically and uncompromisingly on the position that the Governor of a State holds the highest office in the State. 

“By that position, the respect, protocol and dignity that must be given to the office by virtue of the Constitution must not be denied. To do otherwise is to deride the office and the Constitution,“ he said.
