(PHOTOS) 2019: See What Fayose Did When He Met Peter Obi In Lagos
The former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, on Monday hosted Peter Obi, the running mate of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Both members of the opposition party met at the Lagos residence of Mr Fayose.
It came weeks after Obi was picked by Atiku who was a former Vice President, as his running mate in the 2019 presidential election.
Mr Fayose recently had issues with the PDP that resulted in his removal and reinstatement as the party leader in Ekiti.
He is the South West Coordinator of the party's presidential campaign and he gave some assurances to Mr Obi ahead of Nigeria's general election that is less than 95 days away.
On his Twitter page, Mr Fayose said: "As the SW Coordinator of the PDP's Presidential Campaign, I hosted our VP candidate, Peter Obi in my Lagos residence today.
"I assured him of our total commitment and he expressed confidence in our ability to lead the party to victory. We had fruitful discussions".
Mr Obi's choice had whipped up mixed reactions in the South East with some questioning the reason for choosing him.
However, everyone seems to have pushed the choice issue aside and have faced reality.
