Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Wednesday met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at an event in Abuja.

Atiku met Obasanjo during an event by the Gusau Institute on “A New Era for China-Africa Cooperation in Abuja''.

Both men shook hands and discussed briefly at the event.

Obasanjo and Atiku, who were in charge of the country between 1999 and 2007, fell out shortly before the end of their tenure.

In some photographs shared by Abubakar’s media Aide, Paul Ibe, both leaders perceived to be at loggerheads were seen exchanging pleasantries by shaking hands.
