Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, today met with his former boss and ex-President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Abeokuta, Ogun state capital.
It is the first ‘big’ meeting Atiku has held since he clinched the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Atiku was accompanied to Obasanjo’s residence by National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Uche Secondus; director-general of Atiku’s campaign, Gbenga Daniel and senator representing Bayelsa east, Ben Murray-Bruce.
Also present at the meeting were religious leaders including founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, better known as Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo; a Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi; Catholic bishop of Sokoto diocese, Mathew Kukah.
In his acceptance speech at the PDP convention, Abubakar paid tribute to Obasanjo, saying he could not have achieved much politically without the contribution of the elder statesman.
Two days after showering encomiums on Obasanjo, the ex-president said Nigeria needs a leader who has knowledge of the economy.
