Members of the association led by the chairman, Evangelist Oluwatosin Jeremiah presented to the gift to him shortly after a closed door meeting with Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Jeremiah told newsmen that the association had visited former President to seek his help on the challenges facing the rubber industry in Nigeria.
He identified funding and land as the major challenges in the industry.
Asked on what informed choice of crocodile as a present to Obasanjo, he responded “We can’t give him money, that’s why we settled for this and you can see how he received and valued it.”
The former President immediately handed over the crocodile to Mr Oluwadamilare Ajayi who is the Wildlife Curator at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Wildlife park.
