Published

on

The President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, and former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Tuesday met behind closed doors at the Presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport.

The secret meeting which was the first between both men since Buhari was declared winner of the March 28 presidential election lasted for almost an hour.

Buhari was in Lagos for a thank you visit and to campaign for the APC’s governorship candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, but went into the session with Obasanjo on arrival at the airport, before setting out to campaign in the Orile area of the state.

A member of the President-elect’s entourage said, “Gen. Buhari and former President Obasanjo were in the inner lounge of the presidential wing of the airport where they held a secret meeting for almost an hour.

“The National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, Governor Rotimi Amaechi, Senator Chris Ngige and many of us were made to stay at the main lounge throughout the meeting. We do not really know what was discussed but it must have been very sensitive.”
