'Why I visited Obasanjo' – Bukola Saraki opens up | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has disclosed what he called “the main reason” why he visited ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta on Monday.

Saraki had held a closed-door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at the latter’s pent house within the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta on Monday.

Saraki, who came in a black Toyota Land Cruiser in company with some security aides, arrived the OOPL around 5.30pm.

He emerged from the meeting at 7.12pm.

Our source gathered that the meeting was earlier scheduled to hold at 4.00pm but it did not start until 5.30pm when Saraki arrived the venue.

Emerging from the meeting, Saraki told journalists that he was with Obasanjo to make up for his (Saraki’s) absence at the formal inauguration of the Presidential library held last year.

He said, “You know, I missed the official opening of the library and that is why I have decided to come and see the place and, honestly, it is beautiful.

“We are very proud of what he has done here.”

The embattled Senate President hurriedly entered his vehicle and it zoomed off when journalists asked him questions about the crisis rocking the National Assembly.

Informed sources, however, said that the meeting was not unconnected with the crisis rocking the National Assembly over the plot to impeach him by the All Progressives Congress senators.

  1. Even a child, if asked could deduce 'the main reason' why the visit. These politicians think people are as stupid as they are. Now, he's doing his own official opening of the OOPL? Give us a break man!

  2. So how is it your headache Mr. Bankole Coker? can't the man have his own freedom of movement again? what is wrong with some people in this country, even if it is on political reason how is it your business? you people should give Saraki a breathing space, he has gone through enough of mess

  3. Not everyone that sees Saraki as a bad egg among the politicians in Nigeria, many politicians are jealous of him and they want to truncate his political career because they have already see where is heading to, but who can stop a moving train? nobody.
