PHOTOS: Jonathan, Obasanjo, Others Attend Ex Lagos Governor Michael Otedola’s Burial

An ex Governor of Lagos State, Sir Michael Otedola, was buried in his native town of Epe, Lagos State, on May 30, 2014, Friday. 

The ceremony was held amidst tight security, as some of the top people of Nigeria were in attendance. 

The list of those who personally honoured late Otedola included President Goodluck Jonathan, his wife Patience, ex President Olusegun Obasanjo, the Governor of Lagos State Babatunde Fashola and his wife Abimbola. Former governors of Ogun and Anambra states, Olusegun Osoba and Peter Obi, were also in attendance.

It would be noted that it was the first meeting between the president and OBJ since Obasanjo has proposed a peaceful resolution of 47-day-long crisis with missing Chibok girls, and declared that he would ask President Jonathan’s permission to act in an ‘alternative’ way to get the students released.
