Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has visited a former Lagos governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, in London.

Naija News reports Tinubu has been in London, the United Kingdom since July and is believed to be recuperating after reportedly undergoing surgery.

While in London, his residence has turned to a pilgrimage site of some sort, playing host to many notable individuals and leaders particularly from the APC.

President Muhammadu Buhari, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, have also paid a visit while many current and past APC governors and lawmakers have also paid a visit.

In a post via his Facebook page on Tuesday, Governor Abiodun shared pictures of his visit to the APC chieftain in London.

The post read, “Yesterday, I paid a courtesy visit to the National Leader of our dear party, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the United Kingdom.”

Meanwhile, a bill proposing life imprisonment for kidnappers has passed its second hearing in the Nigerian Senate.

Senator Ibikunle Amosun, the sponsor of the bill said there has been a major insurgence in kidnapping in recent times, therefore stricter punishments have to be introduced to combat the uprising.

The senator said the light punishment associated with the crime was the reason for the increase in recent times.

The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, referred the bill to the committee on Judiciary, Human Rights, and Legal Matters.
