...holds closed-door with ex-president

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Wednesday met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta.

Tinubu, who arrived in company with Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker, Federal House of Representatives; Nuhu Ribadu, pioneer chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC); Bisi Akande, ex-interim APC chairman, among others, held a closed-door meeting with the former president in Abeokuta.

The closed-door meeting is not unconnected with Tinubu’s presidential ambition as the two-term governor of Lagos State is said to have begun political consultations as part of a move to seek people’s endorsement, especially ex- presidents and statesmen like Obasanjo, ahead of the presidential election.
