The rally was held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
According to the former president, he came to the event “to say hello”.
When he was given the chance to talk, Obasanjo wished the party and Adebutu success in the aspiration.
“I am just passing by and decided to say hello and wish you well… whether it is a joke or a real game, they will know. I saw you here and I came to play with you,” Obasanjo told Adebutu before heading for his convoy.
Obasanjo, who served under PDP during his two terms as president, has since left the opposition party. He tore his membership card shortly before the 2015 elections.
