Former President has disclosed a discussion he had with the 2023 presidential flag bearer of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju during their recent meeting.

Ngnews 247 recalls that Asiwaju and some of his allies visited Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta on Wednesday.

Although the duo had kept mum over what played out at the meeting, it is speculated to be connected to the 2023 presidential election.

The ex-president who spoke at the inauguration of a 300-man planning committee on the installation of the new Olowu of Owu, Oba Saka Matemilola, said he told Tinubu that he had added two phrases recently used by the former Lagos Governor to Yoruba vocabularies.

He said: “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.”

Recall that Tinubu had during an outburst prior to the APC primary election used the phrases while revealing that there was no way President Muhammadu Buhari would have emerged winner of the 2015 presidential election without his support.
