Abiodun Onafuye/ Abeokuta
Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal today paid a short visit to the former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo at his Hilltop GRA Mansion residence in Abeokuta.
Tambuwal who came in around 6:15 pm in a convoy of SUVs cars was sighted by some journalists when he was driving out of the mansion.
Some reliable sources within the mansion hinted our correspondent that the visit lasted for just twenty minutes and it was held behind closed doors.
When our correspondent contacted the Speaker’s media aide, Imam Imam, he confirmed the visit, adding that such visit to some respectable personalities in the country will be going on now.
Responding on what transpired at the meeting, Imam said the meeting was just the usual one occasionally paid to Obasanjo as the father of all.
According to him, “You know Baba is a father to all in the country.The meeting was a consultation. It is about rubbing mind on how to move the country forward and make Nigeria better”, he stated.
Asked whether it had any connection to the rumoured Presidential ambition of the Speaker, Imam said the meeting was a closed door one therefore he could not comment on that aspect.
On the Speaker’s political ambition, he said,”a decision would be reached not before long on that”.
