Gbajabiamila in a statement on Thursday while speaking at the Surulere Local Government Area (LGA) APC meeting in Surulere, Lagosaid Obasanjo made encouraging statements about Tinubu’s aspiration and even prayed for the APC presidential candidate.
He said, “When we were going to Obasanjo’s house, we were eight, including Asiwaju Tinubu; we did not 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 at Obasanjo’s house waiting for us.
“So, Obasanjo told Asiwaju Tinubu to pick three people from his side and that he would pick three from his side to meet behind closed doors.”
He stated that he alongside Chief Bisi Akande, Osoba and Asiwaju were at the meeting and from what Obasanjo said to them, Tinubu’s victory 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”, Gbajabiamila said.
He added that Tinubu’s meeting with Obasanjo assured him of victory in 2023.
