Obasanjo visits ailing president Buhari in London
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo visited Buhari at the Abuja House in London.
Obasanjo visited President Muhammadu Buhari who has been out of the country for over 80 days on a medical vacation to London.
According to report from a reliable source, ex-President Obasanjo had a warm greeting with President Buhari before both went in for a closed-door meeting that lasted 40 minutes.
“After the exchange of courtesies, Buhari and Obasanjo left for another room in the house where they held a 40-minute meeting.”
Furthermore, it was revealed that Obasanjo was accompanied to London by former Governor of Osun state, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, who however didn’t not partake in the closed-door meeting.
“The leaders were said to have come out of the meeting a few minutes before 10.00 p.m., following which the former president and Oyinlola were seen off by President Buhari.”
It can be adduced from the Saturday trip that got known today that the President is doing fine with his health and may even return to Nigeria sooner than expected.
“Buhari, who was said to have expressed gratitude for the visit, also told Oyinlola that: “Excellency, you are looking really fine” with both Obasanjo and Oyinlola reportedly replying that they were happy to see that he (Buhari) was looking fine too”, report from the leaders’ meeting in London stated.
However, there are indications that President Muhammadu Buhari may return to the country soon, as the presidential jet was reportedly taken off from its hanger where it has been packed for three months.
