Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido held a closed-door meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Lamido visited Obasanjo at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Pent House residence, Abeokuta, on Sunday.

The duo held a closed-door meeting for hours which was not unconnected with the forthcoming convention of the People’s Democratic Party ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

Lamido has been reported to be interested in seeking for the PDP 2023 presidential ticket.

A statement issued by the Special Assistant on Media to the former President, Kehinde Akinyemi, after the meeting quoted Lamido as saying Obasanjo reinforced his faith in the country despite the appalling situation, we are in.

The statement read in part, “Lamido, who declared that the country is bleeding, however, said that his meeting with Obasanjo reinforced his faith in the country.

“How do we remain safe is the biggest problem and challenge now in this country because now, nobody is safe again. Imagine, kidnapping three workers of Baba, a former President of the country? Who is safe again?

"I have come to visit my father and leader and my everything after a very long time and I met him in a very high spirit and good health.

“But he told me that he’s now ageing and I responded that he’s not because we still need him in this country. And he said, ‘Sule, I will do anything for Nigeria.’ That is very inspiring; that is why I like him and this reinforces my faith in the country -my Nigeria.

“We discussed a number of issues, particularly on Nigeria, that he so loved. Honestly, no matter how down we go, we’ll rise again. But obviously, it is bleeding now; it is bleeding.”
