The ex-president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo met with the winner of the presidential poll General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) as he arrived in Abuja yesterday, April 20.

There were reports that the president-elect came to the Federal State Capital to formally present to Nigerians names of members of the transition committee at a party event to be organised in Abuja.

The committee will work with an equivalent committee from the outgoing administration of the current president, Goodluck Jonathan.

The two, Obasanjo and Buhari, had earlier met in Lagos, where they had a closed-door meeting after General’s victory in the March 28 presidential poll.

The former president recently publicly endorsed Buhari for the presidency after falling out with the incumbent and outgoing president of Nigeria. But later Obasanjo denied supporting Buhari as he said he just wanted a strong leader for Nigeria.
