The 2019 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and Oyo State governor-elect, Seyi Makinde held separate closed-door meetings with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Thursday.
Atiku reportedly arrived at Obasanjo Presidential Library at about 1pm and spent one hour with his former boss.
Obasanjo’s media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, confirmed the meeting which he described as private.
Makinde and Obasanjo held another closed-door meeting two hours after Atiku had left.
Makinde reportedly arrived Obasanjo’s residence around 4pm and went straight to the inner room of the former President.
The duo later emerged from the closed-door meeting and held another meeting with some chieftains of the PDP, including the former deputy chairman (South) of the party, Chief Olabode George.
According to a statement by Obasanjo’s media aide, his boss warned the governor-elect in Oyo State against running a selfish government.
“Please, run a government that will make them ask ‘where has this type of government been all this years in Oyo State?’
“You must give them something positive; you must give them good democracy and not that one my younger brothers will call pocketing democracy,” the statement quoted Obasanjo as saying.
