JUST IN: Saraki In Closed-Door Meeting With Obasanjo
Senate President President Bukola Saraki has met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo behind closed doors.
Saraki who adorned a flowing white Agbada and a white cap, arrived the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) at about 5.27 p.m.
He mmediately proceeded into a closed-door meeting with the former President.
Details of the meeting was not made available to reporters who had laid siege for him at the OOPL.
When he emerged from his Abeokuta meeting with Obasanjo, he was silent on national issue or anything pertaining to 2019 politicking but simply said he came to Abeokuta to see Baba Obasanjo having missed the official opening of the multi – billion dollar OOPL project.
He described the Library as a beautiful edifice that should make all Nigerians proud.
“You know I missed the official opening of the library and that is why I have decided to come and see the place and honestly it is beautiful we are very proud of what he has done here,” he said.
He left the library premises at about 7,12pm.
Monday’s meeting comes after a similar one Saraki held with Ibrahim Babangida, former Military President, at his Minna, Niger State home, last Wednesday.
The meeting with Babangida held hours after the Senate President held a ‘World press Conference’ during which he refused to answer a question on whether or not he intends to contest the 2019 presidential election.

Since his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Saraki’s former party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has continued to demand his impeachment.
But Saraki has maintained that he will not quit the position unless he is removed by two-thirds majority of the Senate.
Saraki similarly visited Obasanjo shortly after he became Senate President in June 2015 at a time the APC National Working Committee (NWC) was plotting to diminish his powers due to their unhappiness with his manner of emergence.
