Former Nigeria's President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday paid homage to the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Jimoh Oladunni Oyewumi Ajagungbade III.
The duo was reportedly said to have discussed issues relating to politics, unity of the South West and Nigeria entirely, among others.
Obasanjo who arrived Ogbomoso at about 6:05pm in company of former Secretary to Oyo State Government, Chief Olayiwola Olakojo was received at the palace by the Chairman, Senate committee on ICT and cybercrime, Senator Adulfatai Buhari.
The ex-President who came in his black Toyota land cruiser jeep was clad in purple lace (complete Agbada) and headed straight to the main palace where he exchanged pleasantries with the Soun of Ogbomoso and waited for few minutes before he was ushered in to the dinning where he was treated with a sumptuous meal of Amala and Gbegiri.
While eating, the chief host left the main palace and joined them at the dining table after which the monarch and Chief Obasanjo held a brief meeting. Even though, nobody was privy to their private discussion, an inside source said it may not be unconnected with politics, unity of south west and Nigeria entirely.
"Baba was happy to have received such august visitor and when such people come visiting, Baba will discuss issues bothering on the development of the country, Oyo state and his domain which is Ogbomoso, I can't say if they discussed politics," the source said.
The source further disclosed that the former president commended the Senator representing Oyo North Senatorial districts Senator Adulfatai Buhari for his political dexterity and contributions to the development of the country and his constituency.
While Senator Buhari was introducing the only PDP Federal Lawmaker in Oyo state Hon Segun Dokun Odebunmi to the former president, Obasanjo said, "I know him but is he doing well ? If he is doing well let him continue but he may need to change platform.”
