The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is currently meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Tinubu landed at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Oke Mosan, Abeokuta around 1pm on Wednesday to continue his consultations to actualize his presidential bid.

The APC candidate was received by Governor Dapo Abiodun, his Deputy, Noimot Salako-Oyedele and former governors Olusegun Osoba, Gbenga Daniel and other APC bigwigs, who were already on the ground.

Tinubu was accompanied by House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila and other APC chieftains including Chief Bisi Akande, Nuhu Ribadu, among others.

It is the first time the pair would be having a public one-on-one meeting since their stand-off when Obasanjo was president and Tinubu was Governor of Lagos State. However, THE WHISTLER reports that the APC candidate had met Obasanjo in the lead up to the 2015 presidential election alongside the party’s candidate and current president, Muhammadu Buhari.
