The APC leaders are in Abeokuta to meet the former president.
All is now set for a meeting between leaders of the All Progressives Congress( APC) and former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his hilltop residence in Abeokuta, PREMIUM TIMES can report.
As at 5 p.m. a number of party stalwarts, including some state governors, have converged on the Ogun State Government House located at Oke-Igbein, Abeokuta, preparatory to moving in a convoy to Mr. Obasanjo’s home.
The former president is equally waiting at his residence to receive the APC leaders as at the time of this report. The former president is in company of some of his loyalists waiting for the visitors.
Those already with Governor Ibikunle Amosun at the Ogun Government House include party chairman, Bisi Akande, former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu, former presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, Nuhu Ribadu.
Others are party spokesperson, Lai Muhammed as well as Governors Rochas Okorocha(Imo), Murtala Nyako(Adamawa), Rabiu Kwankwaso(Kano), and Abdul-Fatah Ahmed(Kwara).
Also in the delegation are Senator Bukola Saraki, former Minister Femi Fani-Kayode, and former Borno Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff.
Our correspondent says the delegation is waiting for the arrival of former Head of State, Muhammed Buhari, and Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers, who are said to be on their way to Abeokuta.
Mr. Obasanjo, a leader of Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, recently wrote to President Goodluck Jonathan, complaining of the way the party is being run.
In the letter, exclusively published by PREMIUM TIMES, he accused the president of encouraging corruption, and running the presidency in a clannish manner.
