The hilltop mansion of Olusegun Obasanjo, former Nigeria president hosted Bola Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state and Atiku Abubakar, who was Obasanjo’s deputy between 1999 and 2007.
Both Atiku and Tinubu, who are stalwarts of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), held separate meetings with the former president.
Although none of them publicly discussed the outcome of their meetings, they are believed to be connected with the 2015 election.
In the last few weeks, the hilltop mansion of Obasanjo has hosted prominent politicians, in what could be described as strategic moves ahead of the poll.
Unlike the last time in October when Tinubu visited Obasanjo, he refused to communicate with reporters on Friday.
But Atiku, who is aspiring to secure APC’s presidential ticket, said he came to pay homage to his former boss and also discuss about developments in the nation with him.
Atiku and Obasanjo exchanged pleasantries (pictured) when they met coincidentally at the Minna airport, Niger state, two weeks ago.
Atiku also told TheCable during an exclusive interview that he and his former superior were in cordial terms.
“I still have a good relationship with Baba but on certain occasions we differ on matters of principles and interpretations of facts,” he said.
