Accosted by reporters, the former governor was evasive, saying: "Yes, I was in the building. I met with the Governor".

When asked of his impression of the Government of Dapo Abiodun, he quipped: "So far, so good", adding that his meetings with both the President had "good outcomes".

When asked if what he's bringing to the APC, he said, "You would soon found out" and left in his black Lexus 570 jeep that carried no number plate.
