POLITICS: President Jonathan To Visit Obasanjo Today In Abeokuta to Discuss Some Vital Issues We Don’t Know


Barring any last minute change in plan, President Goodluck Jonathan will on Monday (today), visit former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his Abeokuta, Ogun State residence. The meeting will come less than 48hours after Obasanjo made a surprise appearance at the wedding service of Jonathan’s foster daughter, Inebharapu, at the National Christian Centre, Abuja.


Obasanjo and Jonathan have not been seen together in public events lately, especially since the public presentation of his book, My Watch, which is critical of the President among others.

The former President had last Monday said Nigeria was facing economic problems due to the failure of the present administration to plan for a rainy day.

He told eminent women leaders from the South-West, who visited him at his Hilltop residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State, that the nation’s reserves which as of 2007 stood at $67bn had been depleted by the Federal Government.

Our correspondent learnton Sunday that Jonathan would use the opportunity of his visit to Abeokuta for his campaign rally to visit Obasanjo who had withdrawn from active participation in the activities of the Peoples Democratic Party.

A top government official who is aware of the arrangement told THE PUNCH that Jonathan had been scheduled to visit the former president today.

Jonathan may use the opportunity of the meeting to appeal to Obasanjo to have a rethink on his (Jonathan’s) bid for re-election in February.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation has called on the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj.Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to caution his supporters in order to promote a peaceful election.

The Director of Media and Publicity of the Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, made the call in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja against the backdrop of the violence unleashed on President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign buses at Zololo Junction along Bauchi Road in Jos North North Local Government Area of Plateau State on Saturday.

It doesn't really mean Obasanjo is now taking Jonathans' side.
