Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has introduced new Yoruba political vocabularies.
Obasanjo commented on the visit of Tinubu to him in Abeokuta early in the week while speaking at the inauguration of a 300-man planning committee on the installation of the new Olowu of Owu, Oba Saka Matemilola.
The former President said he told Tinubu how he had added two phrases to Yoruba vocabularies.
He said: “We now have two vocabularies in the Yoruba dictionary, ‘Emilokan’ and ‘Olule’. These two vocabularies are now popularly used.”
It would be recalled that Tinubu, on Wednesday visited the ex-president at his Penthouse, located within the premises of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, One Mosan, Abeokuta.
Tinubu was accompanied by two former governors of the state, Chief Olusegun Osoba and Otunba Gbenga Daniel, billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, and former interim national chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, among others.
Both Obasanjo and Tinubu refused to address the media after their closed-door meeting.
