Buhari meets Obasanjo again inside Aso Rock

Obasanjo and Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday granted audience to former President Olusegun Obasanjo inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Obasanjo, decked in white agbada, arrived for the meeting which was held inside the President’s office at about 12.30pm.

He was accompanied on the visit by one of his close allies, Otunba Johnson Fasawe.

The meeting between the two leaders lasted about an hour.

Obasanjo did not speak with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting.

But a source told our correspondent that the meeting centred on the outcome of Obasanjo’s recent international engagements.

Specifically, the source said the former President used the opportunity of the meeting to formally brief Buhari on the report of the Eminent Persons Group he presented to the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States Summit of Heads of States which ended in Papua, New Guinea on Wednesday.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who represented Buhari at that summit had commended Obasanjo over the report.

Osinbajo had also met with the President earlier in the day.
