Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed the reason behind his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Obasanjo met President Buhari behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa on Monday, July 25, 2016.

Speaking with journalists shortly after the meeting, Obasanjo said he came to deliver messages he brought from abroad.

The former president who recently travelled to Liberia  and Gambia said: ''I am visiting this time because I have some messages for the president. I have messages that these two countries will want me to deliver to the president.

"Also, only yesterday I came back from Seychelles Island where I attended this year’s Annual General meeting of Africa Export Development Bank. And there are aspects of the proceedings that I think I should update the President on," he said.

Speaking on the alleged budget padding in the House of Representatives, Obasanjo said current crisis rocking the lower chambers only confirms his position that Nigerian lawmakers are rogues and armed robbers.
