The Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, his former vice, Atiku Abubakar and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, held a closed-door meeting in Lagos during the weekend.
According to ThisDay, a source at the meeting disclosed that the reason for the gathering is to map out a perfect plan to unseat the president during the forthcoming election.
“It was a strategy meeting towards 2019 and how to give the country a fresh direction.
“The discussion was not about South-west alone; it was a broad-based political arrangement that covers every part of Nigeria. It was a national thing. The basic concern is about how to give Nigeria a new lease of life by enthroning a leadership that will give the citizenry better lives.”
Obasanjo is one of the political leaders opposing the second term ambition of President Muhammadu Buhari. He has maintained a cordial relationship with some leaders across the country to actualize his dreams of supporting his vice, Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Apart from Obasanjo, Atiku, and Saraki, others present at the meeting were: Chief Adebanjo, Chief Olabode George, former Governor of Cross River State, Senator Liyel Imoke; National Publicity Secretary, Afenifere, Mr. Yinka Odumakin; and former university teacher and Yoruba leader, Prof. Banji Akintoye.
