Buhari, Obasanjo Meet Eye To Eye, Exchange Handshake Following Explosive Letter
President Muhammadu Buhari has on Tuesday (today), come face to face with one of his strongest critics, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Buhari and the former President exchanged handshake as they met at the Council of State meeting taking place in Abuja.
It is the first time the President would meet eye to eye with Obasanjo following the latter’s explosive letter on Sunday in which he likened Buhari’s style of governance to late General Sani Abacha.
Buhari’s team had called Obasanjo “desperate” and unworthy of criticising the government.
Also in attendance at the meeting are other former leaders and statesmen such as Abdulsalam Abubakar, Ernest Shonekan, Goodluck Jonathan, Bukola Saraki and others
The meeting is believed to be for the purpose of discussing the forthcoming general elections.
