Obasanjo meets Olubadan-designate behind closed doors

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo Tuesday morning visited the Olubadan designate, Dr Lekan Balogun, at his Alarere residence in Ibadan.

Obasanjo who breezed into the residence without an entourage was led to the palace by the former chairman, Ibadan North East Local Government Area of Oyo State, Arole Gbenga Adewusi.

Obasanjo was said to have held a private meeting with the Olubadan designate which did not last for more than five minutes.

It was while leaving that the former president reminded the monarch that he had not prostrated for him with a promise to do so when next he visits him. 

Reacting to the visitation, Balogun, who was a senator during the first term of Obasanjo as president (1999-2003), said it was a meeting of brothers, recalling that the former president had sent emissaries to him some weeks ago to congratulate him.

He refused to disclose what the two ‘brothers’ discussed but said, “Though the visit was short, it was fruitful and very presidential.”
