Mother of Delta man

Grace Moses, mother of the 27-year-old man who claims to be the biological son of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state, has spoken up.

It would be recalled that in December 2022, Emmanuel filed a lawsuit against the governor in a Delta State High Court, compelling him to acknowledge him as his son and grant him all the rights he duly deserve.

In his 19-paragraph statement, Emmanuel claimed the governor worked at a private company in Delta State from 1994 to 1995, and in the course of living and working in the state, had an amorous relationship with his mother which resulted in his birth. He then requested that a DNA test be done to prove his statement.

Emmanuel, who does “casual jobs” to provide for his wife and three kids, had told newsmen in December that he has not met his father since he was born.

“I am 100 per cent sure that I am the son of Governor Sanwo-Olu. I just want to see the man, Sir, as my father.”

After the first court hearing in December, Gov Sanwo-Olu’s legal counsel filed a mention to strike out the cause because the governor was not ready to wave his immunity. However, the case resumed for hearing on Monday, January 17.

The 47-year-old mother of Emmanuel, who spoke to newsmen after the court hearing, said she is certain that Sanwo-Olu is her son’s father.

“My message to Sanwo-Olu is, he should come and have his child. The baby is grown up. He is troubling me. If not for God, I would have been dead by now.

Because of the pregnancy I couldn’t go to school due to pressure from my mother who chased me out of the house because they had waited for Sanwo-Olu to no avail.

In my bid to abort the pregnancy, I drank “lime, but E no gree commot.

I started selling pig for people and got paid N150 which I used for the upkeep of myself and the baby. The baby is now grown and he’s threatening to kill me if I do not show him his father.”

The woman claimed that she met the Lagos State governor in 1995 when she was 19.

“Governor Sanwo-Olu was working with an oil company, Saipem, at Ubogo Community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State at that time.

We began a relationship which resulted in pregnancy. The governor took me to a hospital in Agbarho Community, Ughelli North Local Government Area where he terminated the pregnancy.

After few days, Sanwo-Olu also had sex with me which resulted in another pregnancy. Since then, Sanwo-Olu abandoned me and travelled out of the state on the grounds that he was transferred to work in Maiduguri, Borno State. I was left to carry the pregnancy and delivered the baby all alone without the assistance of Sanwo-Olu and any member of his family. I told my son, Emanuel Sanwo-Olu that his father is not a cripple. Up till now, he has refused to grant me and his son, Emmanuel Sanwo-Olu audience.”
