Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello Biography

Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello is a famous Epidemiologist, who was born on April 27, 1967 in Nigeria. Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello (born 27 April 1967) in Lagos Nigeria, is the daughter of former Nigerian President Mr Olusegun Obasanjo and his wife Oluremi Obasanjo. According to Astrologers, Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello's zodiac sign is Taurus.

Before her senatorial election, Obasanjo-Bello was Ogun State Commissioner for Health. She was elected as a Nigerian Senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial District of Ogun State in April 2007. She ran for re-election April 2011 on the PDP platform, but was defeated by Olugbenga Onaolapo Obadara of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), who gained 102,389 votes to Obasanjo Bello’s 56,312. For 2012

In April 2003 on the day of the general elections her car was shot at on Ifo Road in Ogun State. She was not in the car but 3 adults and 2 children in the car died. The perpetuators were never caught.

In April 2008, Obasanjo-Bello came under investigation by Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) due to the investigations involving the Former Minister for Health and her minister for (state) Health, Prof. Adenike Grange, for embezzlement of public funds. The Ministry at the end of the financial year did not return all unspent funds to the government coffers. The amount was 300 million Naira, which was allegedly distributed among the Minister, her minister of state and top civil servants on the Senate and House Health Committee she chairs. The Minister and her deputy were forced to resign after returning their share of the money; they were later arrested and posted bail. Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello refused to return her portion of this money, 10 million naira. She claimed that the nine members of her committee “lobbied” for funds from the ministry they oversaw. She maintained this money was spent on a conference on capacity building some members of the health committee attended in Ghana. She has so far refused to appear before the EFCC. Although summoned, along with the minister and other civil servants, she refused to appear in court. A week later a high drama ensued when officials of the EFCC tried to arrest her at her home in the Maitama district of Abuja city, after several simultaneous stake outs by law enforcement officials that had her jumping over her fence to evade arrest by Nigerian law enforcement officers. In 2009 the case was thrown out of the High Court in Abuja as having no merit.
