The respected cleric made the observation in a social media post, in which he described it as “apolitical, irreligious and un-African,” noting that the letter had exposed the Obasanjo family feud.

“The letter became a distraction from a previous one written by her father addressing very important national issues,” Gumi wrote.  “Obasanjo is not a saint, neither is she one nor most Nigerians are.
But what is worth noting is that, at a crucial time when the nation is gripped by official criminality of bloodshed, financial misappropriation, and moral decadence she now sees the opportunity to blast her father.”

He expressed the view that the letter also shows Iyabo lacks proper religious upbringing.

“This is the segment that stirred my attention. I don’t think any person with proper religious upbringing will ever do that to his parent. I once heard in the CNN a British girl calling her Yemeni father an evil man because he took her sister back to Yemen to marry.  Evidently afraid for his daughter the moral decadence of the Western society. Iyabo is a victim of westernization. One thus wonders what the Western life does to humanity.”

The cleric argued that respecting one’s parents is among the Jewish ten commandments which was also endorsed by Jesus, “Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother” Mark:10:19: and in Matthew 15:4: “For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.”
