On Sunday, Nasir El-Rufai, the immediate past governor of Kaduna State, visited former President Olusegun Obasanjo.


El-Rufai visited Obasanjo at his home in Abeokuta, Ogun State.


This was disclosed by El-Rufai’s media aide, Muyiwa Adekeye, via his X handle.


The post, which had pictures from the visit, was captioned, “Former President Olusegun Obasanjo today welcomed Malam Nasir #elrufai to his Abeokuta home.”


The visit is coming after the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, installed El-Rufai as the Gbobaniyi of Ijebuland.




El-Rufai said he’s the first Nigerian outside the Southwest to be conferred with the chieftaincy title.


The former governor had posted on X, “WEEKEND ANNOUNCEMENT: I am also privileged to be the first Nigerian outside of South-West of Nigeria to be conferred with a chieftaincy title by the Awujale in his nearly 64-year reign.


“I am to be recognized as the Gbobaniyi of Ijebuland. I am grateful to Kabiyesi Awujale for the recognition and thank all those who have wished me well for this.


“Please join me, Jimi, and our families and friends in prayers for a hitch free event, and good health, long life and prosperity of His Majesty Awujale and all of us. – Nasir @elrufai”
