NIGERIA 2023: Presidential aspirant Tinubu meets former President Obasanjo

By Our Correspondent

Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the House of Representatives, said the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has finally met with the former President Olusegun Obasenjo.
For several decades, the two politicians had been at opposite ends, criticising themselves over different issues in the nation.
But breaking the news of the meeting, the speaker, who was present at the meeting, said: “When we were going to Obasanjo’s house, we were eight, including Asiwaju Tinubu and me. We didn’t want many people to know about the meeting. So, we were to meet Obasanjo and five others from his side.

“But when we eventually got there, we met something pleasantly shocking: a mammoth crowd of our supporters were already at the former president’s house waiting for us.
“So, Obasanjo told Asiwaju Tinubu to pick three people from his side and that he would pick three from his side to meet behind closed doors.

“So, I, Chief Osoba and Chief Akande and Asiwaju went from our side. My people, what I heard there, what Obasanjo said, the victory of Asiwaju is assured.
“Obasanjo spoke at length and we were all happy. He embraced our candidate like a brother, gave him a pat on the back, and prayed for him copiously.”

He also said: “Next year’s election is going to be an important one in our nation, and we all need to make the right decision,” he said.
“From all indications, there are three main candidates for the election. We know the records of everyone, we know what they did and what they did not do.
“Two were former governors and we know the one whose records are enduring and we know how the other people performed while in office.
“But one thing is a fact: there is none out of the three candidates that has the records of Tinubu.
“He is the best of them all and I don’t have any doubt in my mind that he would win come 2023.”
