She said, “I thank God that I am with baba. Don’t think that it is because of his money, not at all, he doesn’t joke or mess around with his money.

“If he says he loves you, you must be hardworking. We nicknamed baba, wole joko jeun (enter, sit and eat) because of his busy nature. He is always attending to people. He has got answer to everybody’s problem.

“At times in our house, we receive over 100 guests in a single day, and we serve food to them. You dare not tell OBJ that there is no soup in the house, except you want trouble. When he comes in, rush to the kitchen, even if there is nothing, you have to pretend that you are bringing something. If the kitchen is empty, you have to rush to the garden.

“There was a day that someone asked me if we don’t have magazine in the house, and I asked what the person needed it for and she explained that she wanted to use it to fan herself in case of power outage, then I told her that they don’t read magazine here, people come here to see OBJ’s face.

“He is a unique man, very unique, and it is not him, it is the grace of God upon his life,” she added.

Obasanjo got married to Bola in 2009, exactly four years after Stella, who was the first lady during his time in power, died from a failed surgery in a Spanish hospital.
