He wrote: “My gratitude to former President Obasanjo, Governor Dapo Abiodun and the great people of Ogun State for the fantastic welcome.

“Thank you.”

I Didn’t Come For Campaign

After the closed-door meeting, Tinubu reportedly told the crowd of supporters at the MKO Abiola stadium that he was not in Ogun for campaigns yet but just came to say thank you.

He said: “We love what the governor is doing and we are glad with all the support you have given him. Campaign has not started yet, I’m just here to greet you. Thank you and God bless you. God bless Ogun state, God bless Nigeria, God bless your children. Thank you.”
