Oyo State Governor-elect, Seyi Makinde on Thursday met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Makinde said the visit was meant to appreciate “Baba Obasanjo and seek wisdom from the elder statesman to govern Oyo State.”

Makinde was received by the former president at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State, The Nation reports.
Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Makinde said “This is the type of visit that will give us the needed tonic to forge ahead positively in Oyo State.

“Oyo state is in a bad shape but I pledge to apply wisdom to make things better.
“Obasanjo had warned against corruption and transparency. We are very much aware of this too. With God, Oyo state will never be the same again.”


The former Deputy Chairman (South) of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olabode George also at the meeting, said he called Obasanjo barely 24hours ago to fix the appointment.
“I want to thank him for granting us audience within the short notice,” George said.
