Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo, is the twin sister of Mr. Kenny Martins, the politician and former Chairman of Police Equipment Fund. She also has two children for the former president. One of her children is Esther Olubunmi Obasanjo who got married in August 2010.
Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo has since reverted to her maiden name, Martins. Since her secret dalliance with late Godwin Daboh became public knowledge, the former president distanced himself from her.
In an interview, she apologizes to the former President for the problems they encountered in their marriage, saying she would continue to love and adore him as her husband. Waxing spiritual, Mrs. Obasanjo also advocates reconciliation in homes as believes the country would be a better place if the home front was more loving and united.
Addressing her husband directly, she says: “Daddy Olusegun Obasanjo, my great, dearest husband, my secret prayer for you is that you will leave a beautiful, divine legacy behind in your very ripe old age and you will metamorphose into another Nelson Mandela for us, for Africa and humanity”.
