It is the first time they would be meeting since the former president began to publicly criticise the Buhari administration and also after Obasanjo’s explosive letter against President Buhari on Sunday.
Obasanjo had alleged that President Buhari lacks that capacity to offer Nigeria what it deserves at this point in time and is behaving like a former military dictator, Sani Abacha, with plans to rig the 2019 election.
In the open letter titled “Point for Concern and Action”, former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote;
“Buhari has succeeded in deceiving us the first time and we will be fools to allow ourselves to be deceived the second time,”
“Buba Galadima, who knows Buhari very well as a confidant and National Secretary of Congress for Progressive Change,CPC, the Buhari’s party before it joined in forming All Progressives Congress, APC has warned us this time around that no matter what he promises, he cannot change his character and attitude.”
Reacting swiftly to the allegations, the presidency called Obasanjo a coward, adding that it would teach Obasanjo and PDP a political lesson in the forthcoming presidential elections.
