Buhari, Obasanjo All Smiles In Addis Ababa (VIDEO)
President Muhammadu Buhari and former President Olusegun Obasanjo met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, at the opening session of the 30th African Union summit.
This comes five days after the former president in an 18-paged letter called for Buhari’s retirement in 2019, saying the president should not “over-tax the patience and tolerance of Nigerians for him.”
Obasanjo said Buhari, apart from being bereft of the necessary ideas that could move the country out its current doldrums, has been unduly “nepotic” in his appointments.
But the two leaders on sighting each other shook hands, exchanged pleasantries and engaged each other in a short discussion that lasted about two minutes.
Thereafter both men posed for photographs, and were joined by a former military Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.).
