Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is not known to back down from a fight.

He is one man that will attack you now and shake your hand the next minute.

Obasanjo, who, only on Sunday, heavily criticised the Buhari administration’s policies and alleged plans to rig the February polls, is attending the Council of State meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

It was Obasanjo who said the Christian prayers before the meeting went into closed-doors. A former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mohammed Uwais, said the Muslim prayers.

President Muhammadu Buhari chaired the meeting holding at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
