Description: Former First Lady, Turai Yar’Adua, on Saturday paid a surprise visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his residence at Abeokuta, the Ogun State cap

Former First Lady, Turai Yar’Adua, on Saturday paid a surprise visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his residence at Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Premium Times reports that Mrs. Yar’Adua was reportedly accompanied to the former president’s Hilltop Mansion by business mogul, Kenny Martins.

They both met privately with Obasanjo for more than an hour before departing in a convoy of three cars.

Turai’s visit is coming at a time her daughter is being investigated by the EFCC over alleged fraud.

It is the former First Lady’s first visit to Obasanjo since her husband died in office in 2010 after prolonged battle with acute pericadietis.

It was gathered Turai during the visit, thanked the former President for finding her late husband a worthy successor, and pleaded with him to forgive her and her family for whatever wrong was done to him (Obasanjo) during Mr. Yar’Adua’s tenure.

Sources said Yar’Adua also pleaded with Obasanjo to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari not to harass or victimize her family members or those who worked with her husband.

“She specifically intimated the former President of the ongoing probe of one of her daughters, Zainab, by the EFCC. She believed it is a witch-hunt, a ploy by the Buhari government to get at her family,” one of our sources said.

“It is true that she visited on Saturday,” the aide said. “I don’t know exactly what she discussed with Baba (Obasanjo). But I think it is safe to say she came to greet him and discuss issues relevant to the two families.”

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had on July 22 summoned Zainab, wife of former Kebbi State Governor, Saidu Dakingari, over alleged N2billion fraud perpetrated during her husband’s tenure as governor of the Northwest State.
