Atiku, a former presidential candidate, arrived at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), around 10am on Saturday.

the day before, he was at the Iperu Remo area of the state, where he met with some members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), particularly, a former governorship candidate of the party in Ogun State, Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu, who was celebrating his birthday.
