Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal met yesterday with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his Abeokuta hill-top residence.
Tambuwal, who was driven into the expansive compound of the former president in a convoy of SUVs around 5.30p.m, left about 45 minutes after.
No reason was given for the meeting, but Tambuwal’s spokesman Alhaji Imam Imam, said: “You know Baba is a father to all in the country. The visit was to consult him. It is about rubbing minds on how to move the country forward, and make Nigeria better”.
He added: “It was a closed door meeting. As for whether it is in connection with a presidential ambition, I cannot comment. Let’s wait till 2015 and then we will address that”.
It would be recalled that the No. 4 citizen had, in February, 2014 met with Obasanjo in Abeokuta where he told inquisitive journalists on the purpose of the visit that he came to tap “from the wealth of experience” of the former president.
