The Peoples Democratic Party 2019 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is currently in a closed-door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.


Atiku was the Vice-President to Obasanjo between 1999 and 2007.

He arrived the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Complex, Abeokuta, at 1.09pm.

On Atiku’s entourage are the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus; his campaign director, Otunba Gbenga Daniel; Senator Ben Murray-Bruce; and a former Cross River State governor, Liyel Imoke, among others.

The meeting is not unconnected with Atiku’s presidential ambition in 2019,according to observers.

Leaders from the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, had earlier visited Obasanjo on Tuesday, allegedly to prepare a soft landing for Atiku in Abeokuta, considering the frosty relationship between him and his host.
