Ex-President, former minister accused of adulterous affair

An online frenzy was sparked after a photo showing Obasanjo and Mrs Ezekwesili in a warm embrace was criticized by a group known as ‘Hope for Nigeria’.

Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has been forced to deny any wrongdoing after she was accused of being involved in an indecent affair with ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo.

An online frenzy was sparked after a photo showing Obasanjo and Mrs. Ezekwesili in a warm embrace was criticized by a group known as ‘Hope for Nigeria’.

The group wrote on its Facebook page:

“This is Dr. Oby Ezekwesili the #BringBackOurGirls crusader with former President Obasanjo at his book launch.”

“Was it that Ezekwesili forgot that she was in a public place and a married woman? She threw caution to the wind. Anyway, we saw her sticking out her finger in excitement, while the ‘Chemistry’ lasted.”

“What manner of role model will this woman be to young Nigerian girls who look up to her?”

In response to the allegations, Mrs. Ezekwesili accused the group of having impure hearts. She said via Twitter:

“My former boss – President Obasanjo – gave me a boisterous greeting at his event yesterday (Tuesday) and the impure in heart now turn it to lurid tales.”

“Restoring family values will also help take us back to a decent society. It is clear that many among us have lost our pure hearts,” she said.

The controversial photo was taken during the launch of Obasanjo’s autobiography, titled “My Watch”, on December 9, in Ikeja, Lagos.
