*Political Drama* PRESIDENT JONATHAN & OBASANJO MEET IN KENYA AFTER CONTROVERSAL LETTER

; Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday met behind closed doors in the Intercontinental Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya.
The meeting held less than 24 hours after an 18-page letter Obasanjo sent to Jonathan went public.
Both leaders were in Nairobi for Kenya’s 50th independence anniversary which was held inside the Safaricom Stadium.
The former President had in the letter accused Jonathan of condoning corruption and engaging in acts that were capable of destroying the country.
Before the event, Obasanjo had made an appearance at Jonathan’s hotel on a day the media were awash with the letter titled “Before it is too late.”
The former President’s arrival was said to have been heralded by the surprise visit to Jonathan by Obasanjo’s daughter identified simply as Funke.
A source toldThe PUNCH that a few minutes after that, Obasanjo arrived to the surprise of Jonathan’s aides.
The source added that the ex-President, in his usual humorous manner, said, “Mr. President, I have come to pay homage.”
According to him, they talked briefly over breakfast after which Obasanjo jokingly said, “Mr. President, permission to go ahead of you.”
Our source said Jonathan replied with “Permission granted,” amidst laughter by the two of them and their aides.
ButThe PUNCH learnt in Abuja on Thursday that the Presidency and the Peoples Democratic Party were already planning a counter offensive against Obasanjo.
