Obasanjo, Mu’azu In Secret Meeting
The new National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adamu Mu’azu was, yesterday, locked in a two-hour secret meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, at the latter’s Hilltop Mansion, in Abeokuta.
Mu’azu, arrived Abeokuta around 3: 30p.m. in a convoy of four vehicles and headed straight for the meeting without speaking to newsmen.
He also did not speak to waiting reporters when he left the residence at exactly 5: 35p.m.
The closed door meeting, had in attendance, Senator Andy Uba, who was a senior aide to Obasanjo during his administration, former PDP National Auditor, Bode Mustapha, among other associates of Obasnjo and Mu’azu.
Mu’azu’s visit, it was learnt, was not unconnected with the crisis rocking the party upon which Obasanjo last year decided to suspend himself from activities of the party at all levels.
New PDP Chairman Mu’azu for eight years had promised to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party.
Although details of their discussions were not made known, a highly placed source told Vanguard that Mu’azu begged Obasanjo for support ahead of the 2015 elections.
But a governorship aspirant in the state, Kayode Amusan commented on the visit:
"Baba has ruled this nation for how many decades? So, you can’t rule him out in this country. Of course, in a democratic dispensation, there must be re-grouping, there must be alignment and there must be re-alignment, and that is it. ’No matter what the disagreement, there is need for him to go round and put things together."
