One of former President Olusegun Obasanjo wives, Taiwo, has filed a case at the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja asking that the wedding ceremony of their son Olujonwo be halted.The wedding slated for May 11 and 12, 2017 apparently has not secured her full blessings.
She is seeking for a postponement of the wedding of her son, Olujonwo, to Tope Adebutu, a daughter of Sir Kessington Adebutu, popularly known as ‘Baba Ijebu.’
The respondents in the suit filed before Justice Lateefa Okunnu are Obasanjo and the father of the bride, Adebutu.

Her major grievance is that she hasn’t been “carried along” in the wedding plans.Mrs. Obasanjo is seeking a court declaration that as the mother of the groom, she has parental rights to take part in the deliberations, decisions and activities leading to the forthcoming ceremony.
She claimed that while the wedding date had been fixed and invitation cards given out, she, as the mother of the groom, had been excluded from the preparations for the wedding.
She stated in court documents that prior to the fixing of the wedding date, she had a premonition regarding her son who will turn 34 on June 1, 2017.
She also added that she had received prophesies and spiritual warnings to the effect that Olujonwo should not undergo any elaborate celebration before his 34th birthday, whereas the marriage had been fixed for May 11 and 12, which is two weeks before Olujonwo’s birthday.
This, she said, was to avoid any impending calamity.

Mrs. Obasanjo noted in her suit that she commenced the suit to compel Adebutu and Obasanjo to shift the wedding to a date beyond June 1.
The case has been slated for April 10, 2017.
She also claimed to have resorted to filing the suit after her plea to Adebutu, and his wife, Rosemary, was ignored. She said her pleas fell on deaf ears and she was instead, insulted by members of the family.
The feud regarding the wedding seems to stem only from Obasanjo’s Wife , nothing has been heard yet about the Former Presidents position on the issue.
