It might be the season of politics and tension but former President Olusegun Obasanjo is not allowing this to divide his family as he was seen spending time with his son, Olajuwon.
The catch here is that Olajuwon is an avid supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari and was recently appointed the President of Buhari Youth Organization,(BYO).
Juwon’s father, the former President Obasanjo, meanwhile supports Buhari’s main opponent in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar.
Even though both men are on different sides of the political divide, they’ve made sure that this does not affect their relationship.
Olajuwon and his father were recently pictured playing squash at Obasanjo’s home in Abeokuta. Obasanjo was so into the game as he had to remove his shirt to enjoy the game.
Obasanjo is not the only big politician who supports a different candidate from their child. PDP chieftain, Doyin Okupe is also on a different side of the political divide from his son. While his son supports Buhari, Okupe supports Atiku.
However, reports suggest that Okupe is not happy with the decision of his son. The same cannot be said of Obasanjo and Olajuwon
Hope this is a lesson to politicians ahead of the 2019 election.
