The chopper of the former Governor of Lagos State landed at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Oke Mosan, Abeokuta around 1 pm.

The Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun who was on the ground received Tinubu, while his Deputy, Noimot Salako-Oyedele and former governors Olusegun Osoba, Gbenga Daniel also welcomed their leader.

Hours after the visit, Obasanjo has yet to issue any official statement on the visit of the presidential hopeful to his Abeokuta residence ahead of the 2023 elections.

I Didn’t Come For Campaign
After the closed-door meeting, Tinubu told the crowd of supporters at the MKO Abiola stadium that he was not in Ogun for campaigns yet but just came to say thank you.

He said: “We love what the governor is doing and we are glad with all the support you have given him. Campaign has not started yet, I’m just here to greet you. Thank you and God bless you. God bless Ogun state, God bless Nigeria, God bless your children. Thank you.”
