The details of the meeting between former President Olusegun Obasanjo and presidential aspirant, Bukola Saraki have emerged.
Naija News earlier reported that the former Senate President met with Obasanjo at the Penthouse residence of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta on Monday.
Saraki was accompanied by former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kawu Baraje, and other members of his campaign team.
Speaking with reporters at the end of the meeting, Saraki said he came to inform the former President that he was in Ogun state to meet PDP delegates about his presidential ambition.
The former Governor of Kwara state added that he came to see how well the former president is doing and learn from his wealth of experience.
Speaking further, Saraki said the country is in a very delicate situation and needs an experienced leader who can unite the people.
He said, “I’m in Ogun state to see PDP delegates, but I can’t come to Ogun state and not pay a visit to the former President, our father and leader of modern Nigeria, somebody I’m very closed to since I started my political career. So I came to see him to let him know that I’m in Ogun state and to see how good and how well he is doing.
“We are in a very very delicate state as a nation and we need somebody who has the experience, somebody who can unite us because without unity we cannot go anywhere.
“And we thank God for his health, his energy, and his passion for this great country. It inspires us to see that definitely, we need to turn this country around into a country that he wishes for and that all of us wish.”
