President-elect holds secret meeting with Obasanjo in Lagos

President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, April 7, held a secret meeting with former President, Olusegun Obasanjo in Lagos.

The one-hour meeting between the duo was said to have taken place at the Presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport.

“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,” a member of Buhari’s team told Punch.

“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,” he added.

Obasanjo endorsed Buhari for the Presidency before the March 28 elections and also wrote him an open letter of congratulations and advice upon his victory.
