The former President further stated that he was in Minna to visit Abubakar who had been indisposed.

Obasanjo said, “I came to see my brother who has been a little indisposed. I had plans to visit him when he was still in London, but the day I arrived in London was the day he returned home.

“So that is why I decided to come and see him at home. He is very special so I had to come.

“If there is anyone who is indisposed, I will visit and I am still strong.”

The former President arrived at Abubakar’s residence at 12:30 and left at1:13 pm.

There had been speculations that Obasanjo is supporting the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
