Atiku meets Obasanjo for the first time since losing to Buhari

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, on Thursday paid a visit to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

This was revealed in a statement signed by Obasanjo’s media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi.

Akinyemi, however, did not give details of the meeting between the two men.

“Abubakar arrived at about 12:00pm, had a closed session with Obasanjo and came out at about 1:00pm; observed his Islamic prayers and lunch before taking his leave at about 2:00pm,” the terse statement read.

Atiku and Obasanjo had fallen out shortly before they left power in 2007, but reconciled three months to the just-concluded general election.

This is the first time they will meet, since President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), defeated Atiku at the February 23 poll.

    These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.
