“I came to see my brother who has been a little indisposed. When he was in London, I had wanted to visit him but the day I arrived in London was the day he left. So that is why I decided to come and see him at home.

“He is very special and I am still strong to visit those who are special to me”, Obasanjo said.

The former president, who arrived at Abdulsalami’s Uphill residence at 12.30 pm also visited former Military President, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida where he had a closed-door meeting with him.
