He was accompanied by leading APC chieftains, Chief Olusegun Osoba, Chief Bisi Akande, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Femi Gbajabiamila (Speaker of the House of Representatives), Dapo Abiodun (Governor of Ogun State), and billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola.

During the visit, Obasanjo said, he told the former Lagos governor that he had added two new words to the Yoruba vocabulary.

The former president, who did not address the media after Tinubu’s visit, spoke on Friday at the inauguration of a 300-man planning committee on the installation of the new Olowu of Owu, Oba Saka Matemilola.

“We now have two vocabularies in the Yoruba dictionary, ‘Emilokan’ and ‘Olule’. These two vocabularies are now popularly used”.

“I asked Bola and he laughed. I said whether the vocabularies are good or bad, we have started using them,” Obasanjo said.
