Sokoto Gov Tambuwal visit Obasanjo over 2023 election

Sokoto Governor Aminu Tambuwal on Sunday paid a private visit to the former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his Abeokuta home ‘over national issues.’

Tambuwal, who arrived at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Penthouse residence of the elder statesman around 1.30 pm, held a closed-door meeting with him.

According to  Obasanjo’s Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, the former House of Representatives Speaker was accompanied to Obasanjo’s residence by some of his key aides.

Neither Obasanjo nor his guests gave details of discussions during the meeting.

It was learnt that Tambuwal later took lunch with his entourage and headed for the mosque inside OOPL to observe salat (prayers) before leaving the complex.

Sources, however, disclosed that Tambuwal was in Abeokuta to see the ex-president on behalf of the presidential candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

It was learnt that the ex-president, unlike in 2019, was not in support of Abubakar’s presidential ambition this time around.
