Former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday visited the First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, on the occasion of the Sallah celebration.

The spokesperson for the First Lady, Busola Kukoyi, who disclosed this in a post alongside a photo of both leaders via her X handle, said the former president came on the visit to felicitate with the wife of the President in Lagos.

She wrote:  “Former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, after receiving the former President who came felicitating on the Sallah celebration on Monday, June 17.”

Obasanjo had on May 27, attacked the Tinubu administration over the poor implementation of the removal of the fuel subsidy as well as the floating of the naira, which have created more challenges for individual and corporate Nigerians in the last one year.

The former President had said though the policies were necessary, they were wrongly implemented.

Obasanjo had in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, also condemned Nigeria’s approach to the coup in the Republic of Niger, which created tension between both countries.
