Former President Olusegun Obasanjo may have consulted some former Presidents and Northern leaders before issuing yesterday’s statement on President Muhammadu Buhari.
It was learnt that Obasanjo and some former leaders had been weighing some options on the President’s constitutional right to seek another term in office and its implications.
But there were strong signals yesterday that Obasanjo’s advisory might be a template for the emergence of a new national party.
The former leaders have had up to three meetings with Obasanjo in the past few months as part of their “position on the way forward for Nigeria from 2019”, a source told The Nation.
