Pastor Bakare who is a rare visitor to the Villa was seen holding a black bag while walking side by side with Adeosun who engaged him in a discussion.

You may recall that Bakare, a former running mate to Buhari under the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), had recently criticised the president over the worsening economic and security situation in Nigeria.

It was not clear why he was in the company of the Finance Minister who is facing controversy over alleged forgery of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) exemption certificate.
