Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that the discussion during the visit of the Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to him was “more brotherly than political.”
A statement today, August 20, by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi quoted Obasanjo as saying that the statements coming from those claiming to be supporters of Bola Tinubu are unhelpful to the candidate.
Obasanjo said that at the request of Bola Tinubu, he (Obasanjo) agreed that the two of them would issue statement on the discussions at the meeting.
“Those claiming to be insiders at the meeting issuing statement on the discussion and those crediting to me statement I had not made are enemies of the visitor and are not doing the visit any good.”
Tinubu had met with the former president last week Wednesday behind closed doors.
The two leaders did not address newsmen after the meeting, but speculations of what transpired at the meeting trended on social media.
