"Baba, you are going nowhere. Baba, by the grace of God, you will live longer. We cannot afford you are going now. You have been my father over the years, but, now that my biological father has gone to meet with the saints, you have to step up now to be my father.”

He asked Obasanjo to take charge as his father since his biological father is no more, adding that since the former president did not decline the request, it can be safely assumed to have been approved with immediate effect.

According to the report, the governor has thus successfully ‘ported’ to the Obasanjo family, from his natural Abiodun lineage.

In his response, Obasanjo said that the governor's father, Pa Abiodun died well, adding that at 89, no one could accuse the evil ones of having done their worst.
