They both met behind closed-doors inside the President's Office.

This was the first time the ex-governor would visit President Buhari since he left office on November 12, 2016.

When State House correspondents asked him what his mission was at the Villa amidst a media report that he might be given a federal appointment, Oshiomhole simply said he visited to exchange pleasantries with Buhari for the new year.

President Buhari had on November 7 last year when he visited Edo State said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would find an important national assignment for Oshiomhole when he left office.

“It will be a pity to waste his energy by him retiring. I hope there will be a higher assignment for him to do more for the nation. I congratulate the governor for his hard work; Oshiomhole is a hard working governor. We will need his services in Abuja.
