She wrote, “Former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and the First Lady of  Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, after receiving the former President who came felicitating on the Sallah celebration on Monday, 17th June.”

Obasanjo had criticized Tinubu’s decision to run for president in 2023.

On May 27, Obasanjo criticized the Tinubu administration over the poor implementation of the removal of the fuel subsidy as well as the floating of the naira.

The former president said though the policies were necessary, they were wrongly implemented considering the suffering in the country.

According to a statement made available to journalists by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo also condemned Nigeria’s approach to the coup in the Republic of Niger.

He was said to have spoken in Abuja at a  colloquium tagged: “Nigeria’s Development: Navigating the Way Out of the Current Economic Crisis and Insecurity.”
