Obasanjo stated this through one of his allies, Dr. Femi Majekodunmion Saturday in Odeomu, Ayedaade Local Government Area of Osun State at the handover of a multi-purpose hall and a library donated by Senator Yinka Omilani to the community to mark his 80th birthday.

Majekodunmi said the former president, who was presently in China, asked him to tell Aregbesola that certain things he said during the crisis doused the tension but he did not say what the governor said exactly.

“He (Obasanjo) is in China now. He said the governor (Aregbesola) said something which confirmed his neutrality in the matter; that word went a long way in dousing the tension which recently heightened in the state,” he said.
