Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s son, Olujonwo met President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja and pledged to campaign for his re-election.
The younger Obasanjo, son of Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo, has already identified with the campaign team.
The 34 year-old only visited today to meet the President and pledge his support, contrary to the position of his father, who is vehemently against Buhari.
Meanwhile South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has lashed out at the corruption that infected the country before his predecessor, Jacob Zuma, was ousted as head of state earlier this year.
He said corruption was now being tackled, but people still needed to see senior government officials tried and sent to prison.
Mr Ramaphosa acknowledged that because he was deputy president during the darkest period he too must give evidence to a judicial corruption enquiry.
Later in the day, the president confirmed the sacking of the head of the country’s tax authority, Tom Moyane.
He had been under suspension since March over a string of controversies, including missing revenue.
