Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) in the last election, on Thursday paid a visit to
ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
This was revealed in a statement signed by Obasanjo’s media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi.
Akinyemi, however, did not give details of the meeting between the two men.
“Abubakar arrived at about 12:00pm, had a closed session with
Obasanjo and came out at about 1:00pm; observed his Islamic prayers and
lunch before taking his leave at about 2:00pm,” the terse statement
Atiku and Obasanjo had fallen out shortly before they left power in
2007, but reconciled three months to the just-concluded general
This is the first time they will meet, since President Muhammadu
Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), defeated Atiku at the
February 23 poll.
