Tinubu visited the ex-president in the latter’s penthouse inside the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, on Wednesday, accompanied by two former governors of the state, Chief Olusegun Osoba and Otunba Gbenga Daniel, billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, and pioneer national chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande, among others.

The duo refused to address the media after the meeting.

Obasanjo, who spoke at the inauguration of a 300-man planning committee on the installation of the new Olowu of Owu, Oba Saka Matemilola, said he told Tinubu that he had added two phrases to Yoruba vocabularies.

He said: “We have two vocabularies in the Yoruba dictionary, ‘Emilokan’ and ‘Olule’. These two vocabularies are now popularly used.

“I asked Bola and he laughed. I said whether the vocabularies are good or bad, we have started using them.”
