Buhari in a closed door meeting with Obasanjo

President Muhammadu Buhari has received the former president Olusegun Obasanjo in Aso Rock villa on June 3, Friday.


This was contained in a Twitter of Bashir Ahmad, personal assistant to the president on new media.

While details of the meeting are still sketchy Nigerians suppose that two leaders discussed upsurge of the militants attacks in the Niger Delta region.

Obasanjo is a frequent quest in the presidential villa.

He has visited the incumbent president five times since the inauguration on May 29, 2015. The first visit was on August 8 and next on September 8 and November 10, 2015, and the latest came on April 6.
The two politicians did not get along very well when Obasanjo was the president. Buhari lost to Obasanjo in the 2003 presidential poll and lost again to president Umaru Yaradua who was endorsed by Obasanjo four years later. Those two elections were marred by irregularities.
