Mojisola, Gbenga Obasanjo’s ex-wife, gets a second shot at power as her new husband becomes Lagos commissioner

After the storm and hassles of her scandalous marriage to Gbenga Obasanjo, Mojisola, former daughter- in-law to ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has attained her second chance at the limelight. Mojisola is back in the nation’s power circuit as her current husband, Mustapha Akinkunmi, was recently sworn in as a commissioner in Lagos State. Mojisola was equally at the receiving end of virulent criticisms as her estranged husband, Gbenga, following the latter’s revelation of an incestuous affair between Mojisola and her father and his own father, former president Obasanjo. It would be recalled that Gbenga’s disclosure shocked his loved ones and rattled the entire country as he regaled the public with stories of how his father and father-in-law had carnal knowledge of his wife. He accused Mojisola of having a sexual affair with his father all in the name of currying his favour back when he was president of Nigeria. Moji, who wept profusely in public as she laboured to deny the grave allegations and save her severely damaged reputation had to take a break away from the monumental scandal after which she came back to defend herself in court. The onus of denial however, fell on Moji alone as neither Gbenga’s father nor her father came out to douse the tension created by the revelations which was leaked to the public when Gbenga went to court to sue for the dissolution of their marriage. Those dark days have been put behind her now as she has found in her new husband, what she couldn’t find in Gbenga, power or a semblance of it. Akinkunmi, her new husband, holds degrees from the New York Institute of Technology, Old Westbury and Fordham University, Bronx, New York. Until his recent appointment, he served in various capacities as a consultant, financial advisor and business strategist with AT&T, Goldman Sachs, Phibro Energy, First Boston (Credit Suisse), World Bank and Central Bank of Nigeria respectively.
