The Nigerian High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, Sarafa Tunji Isola has held a brief reception for the Nigerian former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo after a closed door chat.
Isola who is the Nigerian 14th Ambassador to the Court of St James, received Obasanjo while on his way back from a Caribbean country.
Obasanjo, who arrived shortly after noon, was received by Isola, some senior diplomats , the Defence attaché and a handful of other staff at the High commission.
Speaking at the reception held in his office, Isola said “I’m wearing three caps, that of a son, mentee and an Ambassador,”
After the visit, Obasanjo happily posed with a few Nigerians in the Diaspora, who sighted him outside the imposing Nigerian House building.
First, was a cab driver, who quickly parked on the side road, and asked for a selfie on sighting him and the ambassador.
He went back to his cab, smiling and saying he just couldn’t let the opportunity pass him by.
Isola and the officials walked towards his car, while those coming from the passport section of the commission asked for the photo opportunities on seeing him.
Obliging happily, Obasanjo said to one of them , “gba mi mu, gba mi mu”- hold me, hold me- as he posed for the cameras with a crowd of about 10 Nigerians.
