My son truly looks like Obasanjo – Samuel Ajibola admits

Popular Nigerian actor, Samuel Ajibola fondly called “Spiff” has admitted that his son shares a resemblance with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The actor said he delayed in taking legal action because he had been analyzing the situation in order to come up with the best possible solution.

Speaking on the matter during an interview with Channels TV anchors, Spiff said that after looking closely at the picture he also noticed that Obasanjo and his son looked alike but he explained why it seemed so.

He said: “The picture that caused the stir was the picture with me and my wife with the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

“I’m the Youth Ambassador to the Youth Development Centre of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library. So I have a relationship with him. He is a huge mentor to my life.

“And so from time to time, I visit him. After I had my son, I took him there to see him. And people started assuming things. They said, ‘Okay, my wife was a secretary to the former President.’ It moved from that to, ‘Oh! He [Obasanjo] is the true father’ of my son.

“I won’t deny it, I’m saying this live on air. In that picture, my son does look like him there. But there are circumstances around it. And it’s still a picture. It’s a still picture. It’s a second. It’s a moment of which my son was just waking up from sleep when we arrived.

So he was just booting and he had those eyebags. Those eyebags made him look like the former President. And people were claiming as if they were 100 per cent sure that the former President was the true father of my son.”
