Obasanjo, Tambuwal hold secret meeting in Abeokuta

“It was just a meeting to rub minds with Baba being that the former president is a father figure to all Nigerians and an elder-statesman”.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, Tuesday, held a closed-door meeting at the former’s home in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Though the detail of the meeting was not disclosed, it is believed to be in relation to the coming 2015 general elections.

While both men are members of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Obasanjo recently wrote to the leadership of the party, informing it of his decision to stay away from all PDP activities.

Prior to that, Mr. Obasanjo had written a letter to President Goodluck Jonathan accusing him of mismanaging the party, and planning high level political assassinations.

The former President accused Mr. Jonathan of reneging on a promise to do only one term in office.

Although Mr. Tambuwal remains a leader of the PDP, he is rumoured to be one of the front runners to clinch the presidential ticket of the opposition All Progressives Congress.

Only last week, posters of the Speaker alongside his deputy, Emeka Ihedioha as presidential and vice presidential aspirants adorned major streets of Abuja.

Both Messrs. Tambuwal and Ihedioha distanced themselves from the posters.

Neither Mr. Tambuwal nor Mr. Obasanjo spoke to journalists after Tuesdays’ meeting.

However the spokesperson of Mr. Tambuwal, Imam Imam, informed PREMIUM TIMES that Mr. Tambuwal was just in Abeokuta to ‘rub minds’ with the former president.

“It was just a meeting to rub minds with baba being that the former president is a father figure to all Nigerians and an elder-statesman.

The same way we do meet with other stakeholders, the speaker went to confer with Baba and rub minds together as part of our legislative mandate,” he said.

Another source close to the speaker informed PREMIUM TIMES that Mr. Tambuwal has started nationwide consultation with regards to his rumoured presidential ambition.

“The Speaker has already begun consultations with all relevant stakeholders, you know 2015 is fast approaching,” our source, who declined to be named because he is not permitted to talk to the press, said.

      So, there’s no difference between a baboon and a monkey accepting banana from Baba Gorilla of Ota!

      • Jamiu Akinfenwa

        What a balanced equation: Ota Gorilla=Otuoke Chimp+Sokoto monkey. Banana must go the the monkey otherwise equation can not be balanced.

      Since that 24th of May 2013, these nasty thieving Fulani governors ati their Speaker–Tmabuwal have become a CLOG in the wheel of Nigerian democracy-simply because an Ijaw is now President-Yet they would not work to allow them go their separate ways———that is the only solution to all our troubles–Baba Iyabo———-. (This New Nation called Nigeria, should be an estate of our great grandfather, Uthman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the minorities in the North as willing tools, and the South, as conquered territory and never allow them to rule OVER us, and never allow them to have control over their future.” —Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sardauna of Sokoto in THE PARROT of October 12, 1960)

        I don’t blame you. You always get your source from parrots, bats, canaries and vultures and that forms your tiny myopic mind. No wonder they say birds of the same feather flock together.

    Since that 24th of May 2013, these nasty thieving Fulani governors have become a CLOG in the wheel of Nigerian democracy. They have virtually absent themselves from their duty posts without leave. But their various Houses of Assembly cannot dream of impeaching them because all the House members are their boys.This New Nation called Nigeria, should be an estate of our great grandfather, Uthman Dan Fodio.

      But GEJ is the present C-in-C, if he is that good ..let his work speak for him and stop blaming Tambuwal or others

    • Jamiu Akinfenwa

      Is it that when an ijaw becomes president, no one else should contest, whoever does is evil? What then is the difference between you and the so called North if at all your quotations are correct?

  • uduakomiri

    Please Tambuwal, stay away from Oby. Anything he touches with his tainted hands becomes a curse and badluck to anybody who comes across it.

  • True Nigerian

    Tambu, it’s either you do not know the basic meaning of the phrase “Father figure” or that you do not know the connotation of the phrase “All Nigerians”.

    When your mind is filled with such crass level of woeful ignorance and and your ambitions drunk with insensibility, that is when you would think or suggest that a man like Obasanjo, whose own biological children consider to be a devil, is in fact qualified to be referred to as “Father figure to all Nigerians”.

    Is the family of late Chief Bola Ige part of the “All Nigerians” you are talking about? Or do you believe that intellectually emancipated conscious citizens and freeborns like me would permit you to desecrate my sensibilities and conscience by allowing you to refer to Obasanjo as a father figure to me? That is offensive. I mean we are talking about a man who is going to spend the rest of his life in horrible lies as he needs to continue denying and condemning almost everything he wished on Nigeria and did against the progress of this country.

    If you want to do any conscienceless political business with Obasanjo, you are at liberty to do so. It is within your rights to do so. But by jove, please don’t you justify your decision to do so by arrogating a father figure status to Obasanjo in relation to me and other conscientious patriotic Nigerians.

    Obasanjo is a curse on Nigeria. Jonathan’s horrendous leadership is only possible because of Obasanjo’s hellish self-centered abuse of Nigeria and its destructive effects on the present and the future of this country.

    The Department for State SECURITY Services (DSS) said the rejection of N14
    Million from governor Rauf Aregbeshola and the All Progressives Congress
    (APC) by its operatives in Osun state is responsible for the recent media
    attack on the on the DSS.

    Spokesperson of the DSS Marilyn Ogar made the revelation today while
    briefing newsmen in Abuja today.

    “The APC is making unfounded allegations on the DSS because our Operative
    rejected at total of N14 million extended to its officials.

    “They had requested the DSS to come and collect N4 million for himself
    while N10 Million should be given to the boys , but our operatives
    rejected the OFFER.”

    ” Politicians can not entice our operatives with MONEY , we are well paid
    by the federal government so no body can entice us with MONEY no matter
    the amount. We are paid upfront before embaking on such operations; we
    spent N200 million preparing for the election so let no politician think
    they can entice us with money.

      Banza! Learn how to use quotation marks before concocting and writing your rubbish. You lack the intelligence to write something meaningful.

    • Jamiu Akinfenwa

      DSS should do well by arresting whoever offers them bribe. if DSS can not do that who else will do. If there is no evidence they should just keep quiet with shame. Perhaps they rejected the offer because there was a higher bider.
