My daughter, Iyabo is a very tough person – former President Obasanjo

Nigeria’s former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has described her daughter, Iyabo Obasanjo as very tough and highly intolerant of nonsense from anyone. 

Addressing women at the 14th annual lecture of the women in Management, Business and Public Service at Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos, Obasanjo explained that his daughter, Iyabo in 2013, boldly written a letter accusing him of maltreating women.

He said men have made the role of women looked insignificant in the society, saying that “It is out of the selfishness of our men; they will look for anything to keep women under and look at the sort of things that we do.” “I had two girls before I had a boy. I had thought that I would never have a boy before I had a boy. But it doesn’t matter who you are in our own family. My first child, my daughter (Iyabo) will not take nonsense from you.

And you try it; you would be put in your place. “It doesn’t matter; you may be 10 times her height, she will bring you down . (It is) because I give them the encouragement and you heard , eight of my children have PhDs.  “I have slightly more boys than girls but I have more girls with PhD than boys.”
