Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has paid a visit to former president Goodluck Jonathan in his country home, Otuoke, Bayelsa State.

The purpose of the visit is not known as at the time writing this report.

The ex-president, aside the visit to Jonathan, also attended during the commissioning of the Bayelsa State Drug Distribution Centre and other state of-the-art health facilities in Yenagoa.

“One of the things that struck me about your (Dickson’s) administration is the relative peace that you have maintained in the state. I do not know how you have done it, may be we should all come to learn under your tutelage.

“This is so because one of the things we need to do and do well today in this country is the issue of security. Security is, and of course, stability,”Obasanjo said.

“The point is this: If one state is in peace, secured and safe in Nigeria, it is an example to others and it goes a long way because the aggregate peacefulness, the aggregate security and the aggregate security is what makes for peace, security and stability of our country.

“You called me a Bayelsan and I ought to be. I said to the governor that any good man must feel proud to be called a Bayelsan. Because here, you have seen real transformation. If there is a place where you can say, come and see transformation taking place, this is one place in the country,”, Obasanjo,who was conferred with automatic Bayelsa State citizenship and chieftaincy title, added.
