Olusegun Obasanjo, former president of Nigeria, says Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) introduced new vocabularies to Yoruba political dictionary.
The former president, while speaking in Yoruba at the inauguration of a 300-man planning committee on the installation of the new Olowu of Owu, Oba Saka Matemilola, said he told Tinubu that he had added two phrases to Yoruba vocabularies.
“We now have two vocabularies in the Yoruba dictionary, ‘Emilokan’ and ‘Olule’. These two vocabularies are now popularly used,” Obasanjo said.
“I asked Bola and he laughed. I said whether the vocabularies are good or bad, we have started using them.”
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.
