The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, said his visit to former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Friday was to receive his blessing and consult him on how to assist him in moving the Senate and the nation forward.
Mr. Saraki made this known to journalists during an interview after spending over two hours in a closed-door meeting with former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, at his Hilltop home in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
The senate president said he and members of his delegation also came to tap from Mr. Obasanjo’s wisdom and knowledge.
“I’m here with some of my colleagues,” Mr. Saraki said. “Since I’ve been the Senate President, as one of our fathers, the former president, we are here to pay our homage to him, to seek his advice, to get his blessing and also to consult.
“We all know President Obasanjo’s value to this country and we are here to tap from his wisdom, knowledge and experience.”
Mr. Saraki did not say the kind of consultation he held with Mr. Obasanjo
