Atiku arrives Abeokuta, in closed-door meeting with Obasanjo

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, is currently in a closed-door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Atiku was the Vice-President to Obasanjo between 1999 and 2007.

He arrived the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Complex, Abeokuta, at 1.09pm.

On Atiku’s entourage are the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus;  his campaign director,  Otunba Gbenga Daniel;  Senator Ben Murray-Bruce; and a former Cross River State governor,  Liyel Imoke, among others.

The meeting is not unconnected with Atiku’s presidential ambition in 2019, observers say.

Leaders from the Yoruba socio-cultural group,  Afenifere, had earlier visited Obasanjo on Tuesday, allegedly to prepare a soft landing for Atiku in Abeokuta, considering the frosty relationship between him and his host.
