Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, on Thursday paid a visit to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Akinyemi, however, did not give details of the meeting between the two men.
“Abubakar arrived at about 12:00pm, had a closed session with Obasanjo and came out at about 1:00pm; observed his Islamic prayers and lunch before taking his leave at about 2:00pm,” the terse statement read.
Atiku and Obasanjo had fallen out shortly before they left power in 2007, but reconciled three months to the just-concluded general election.
This is the first time they will meet, since President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), defeated Atiku at the February 23 poll.
