A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Sokoto State, HE Aminu Tambuwal visited Nigeria’s former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday at his residence in Ota, Ogun State.
In a statement released by the Media Aide to the former Nigerian leader, Kehinde Akinyemi, said the governor, who was accompanied by some of his aides, arrived at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Pent House residence about 2.30pm.
Akinyemi added that the duo went into a closed-door meeting after exchanging pleasantries. He, however, said the meeting might be unconnected to the forthcoming 2023 elections.
According to the statement, Governor Tambuwal described Obasanjo as a statesman, whose counsel and advice on issues of governance and challenges facing the country is still relevant and needed.
He said Nigerians shall continue to learn from the former president. He hinted that they had a successful parley and he was happy that the elder statesman was in high spirit.
He said: “You know Baba is our leader, statesman. And it is always good for us to come around to see how he is doing, pay homage and to consult him on very many issues of governance, that is why we have come this afternoon. And, we brought him the greetings and felicitations of the good people of Sokoto state.
“We shall continue to learn from him, drink from his wealth of experience and fountain of his knowledge and wisdom on issues of governance and challenges of today.”
Governor Tambuwal prayed to God to continue to give the former president good health and grant him all his heart desires.
