A former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, held a closed-door meeting on Thursday.
Obasanjo arrived at the governor’s office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, at 11:45am and went straight into the meeting which lasted for an hour.
Details of what transpired in the meeting were not made public.
Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, Obasanjo said he had visited the governor to discuss varied issues regarding the development of the state with him.
Some of the issues, according to him, involved education, agriculture and rural development.
Obasanjo equally said he used the opportunity to welcome the governor officially to the office.
Obasanjo said, “I have come to say Happy New Year to the governor and then of course, I haven’t been here since his (Abiodun) assumption of office, to welcome him to his seat.
“ I raised a few issues that I have believed are of interest to the development of the state in the area of education, agriculture, rural development and other sorts of things.
“We had a wonderful discussion,” he said.”
When asked to assess Abiodun’s performance so far, Obasanjo said, “I have not come here to do assessment, I have come here for the promotion of what will move Ogun State forward.”
