Obasanjo broke the news when he hosted women leaders from the South-west at his residence in Abeokuta, Thisday reports.
He said the meeting would not have held “if only I realised that my sister would be called. But, the appointment has been scheduled.”

The women prayed for the repose of the soul of the dead and prayed to God for the Obasanjo family to have the fortitude to bear the loss.
Members of the Christ Chapel of the Glorious King, where Obasanjo is a member, also visited to commiserate with the Obasanjo family.
The congregation led by the Rev. Oyejideprayed for the family on the loss of Obasanjo’s sister.
Madam Eweje-Obasanjo died last Tuesday at an Ota private hospital after a brief illness. She was 76.
