Recall that in the News of recent it was reported that former President Olusegun Obasanjo had received former vice president Atiku Abubakar in his Hill top Abeokuta Residence in Ogun state at the instance of a notable Islamic Cleric Sheik Gumi and also Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church.
The meeting was said to have been a reconcilliatory meeting mending fences between Obasanjo And Atiku whoes differences had been lingering for so long with Obasanjo on record haven said "God would not forgive him if he forgave Atiku".
However like the saying goes in Politics. No permanent Friends, only permanent interests in Politics...
Apparently these people present at the meeting sure would have found a common Interest..
However, Fast forward some weeks later, insider sources within Aso Rock Presidential villa had reported to have seen Obasanjo's son coming to pledge his Alligience to Incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari to distance himself from his Father's sudden choice of Atiku.
In the footage of the pictures obtained Obasanjo junior was visibly elated and very happy to have been granted Audience and Entertained by Muhammadu Buhari.
As the battle towards 2019 heats up, some electorates already made up their minds for Atiku and others for Buhari but it would be unclear where this visit leaves the Obasanjo followers.
2019 would sure decide.
