Former Minister of Solid Minerals, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili has denied insinuation that she was having an affair with her ex-boss, former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Dating rumours began on Tuesday when the Former President hugged Oby at the launch of his new book, My Watch, in Lagos.
Reacting to the picture of their warm embrace which has gone viral with several people insinuating romance between them, Dr. Oby who was equally Education Minister under Obasanjo said on her twitter page that the rumour was unfounded and emanated from low-minded individuals.
“My former boss – President Obasanjo – gave me a boisterous greeting at his event yesterday (Tuesday) and the impure in heart now turn it to lurid tales.
“Restoring family values will also help take us back to a descent society. It is clear that many among us have lost our pure hearts.
“Let us leave them to their lowliness. It is out of the abundance of the filthiness or purity of heart that the mouth speaks,” Ezekwesili tweeted.
