Speaker of House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, said during their visit to former president Olusegun Obasanjo, he embraced the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, like a brother and assure them victory in the 2023 general elections.
Gbajabiamila discloed this in a statement on Thursday while speaking at the Surulere Local Government Area (LGA) APC meeting in Surulere, Lagos.
He said, “When we were going to Obasanjo’s house, we were eight, including Asiwaju Tinubu and me; we didnt want many people to know about the meeting. So, we were to meet Obasanjo and five others from his side.
“But when we eventually got there, we met something pleasantly shocking: a mammoth crowd of our supporters were already at the former president’s house waiting for us.
Adding that, “Obasanjo told Asiwaju Tinubu to pick three people from his side and that he would pick three from his side to meet behind close doors.
“So, I, Chief Osoba and Chief Akande and Asiwaju went from our side. My people, what I heard there, what Obasanjo said, the victory of Asiwaju is assured.
Obasanjo spoke at length and we were all happy. He embraced our candidate like a brother, gave him a pat on the back, and prayed for him copiously”, he said.
