Obasanjo, Atiku Meet In Abeokuta
Former Vice President and the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar on Thursday held secret talks with a former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Abubakar met with the ex-president at his residence within the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The meeting came barely three weeks after Atiku lost to President Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the election.
Atiku according to sources, arrived about 1:00pm in company with some aides.
The meeting came in the wake of threat by Atiku to drag President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, All Progressives Congress (APC), to court over the outcome of the February 23 presidential election.
Atiku’s visit may not be unconnected with the results of the just concluded elections in the country and the tension and controversy generated by the exercise.
It was learnt that the former VP had a private discussion with Obasanjo for one hour, after which he observed the Muslim prayers at the mosque.
Atiku was said to have also had lunch with his host, after which he departed the residence. When contacted last night, Obasanjo’s media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, confirmed Atiku’s visit to his principal.
Akinyemi, however, described the visit as private, adding that no one had knowledge about the discussion of the two leaders.
