Iyabo Challenges Daniel To Radio, TV Debates


Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello, daughter of former president Olusegun Obasanjo, has challenged governor Gbenga Daniel, of Ogun state, to a debate on the television or the radio to determine who actually caused the show of shame at the wedding ceremony of governor Adebayo Alao-Akalaís daughter, at Ogbomosho, over the weekend.

Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello, daughter of former president Olusegun Obasanjo, has challenged governor Gbenga Daniel, of Ogun state, to a debate on the television or the radio to determine who actually caused the show of shame at the wedding ceremony of governor Adebayo Alao-Akalaís daughter, at Ogbomosho, over the weekend.

Senator Obasanjo-Bello was said to have slapped a security aide of governor Danielís, who prevented her from getting close to the governor, on the chest. Berating her critics, this morning, in an interview with P.M.News, Senator Obasanjo-Bello said those criticising her did not know the truth of the matter.

"The truth of the matter is that on that day, when I got to the First Baptist Church, venue of the wedding, it was filled to capacity and I could not get a place to sit.

"However, the Senate Leader, Senator Teslim Folarin, gave me a place to sit beside him, which was directly behind governor Daniel. A short while later, OGD called one of his aides and whispered to his ears.

"During the thanksgiving service, as I stood up to dance, one of his aides, an SSS officer, Frank Osatewe by name, pushed me and started twisting my hand, saying I wanted to touch the governor, when I had no business with him," she stated.

The former Ogun state Commissioner for Health said: "When this man continued twisting my hand and almost injured me, I had to push him. "My brother, I will not lie to you. It was the man that I pushed and not OGD. There was no contact between me and the governor. I donít know where such a story emanated from.

"As a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I think I deserve some respect. Why should a governorís aide treat me like that? I know he was acting on the instruction given to him by his boss. The problem he (Daniel) has is that he claims he is superior to everyone. But God is above everybody.

"The issue of the Iyaniwura title, which he ordered the Alake not to confer on me until I begged him, is still a pain to him. But I will not beg him for such a thing.

"Elders at the gathering, including Senator Teslim Folarin, can testify that this is the true picture of what happened. Can you believe that I had to leave that seat and begged the SSS man attached to governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola of Osun state, to give me a seat beside him," she narrated to P.M.News.
