Obasanjo shocks Nigerians, hugs Buhari at AU Summit after giving him red card

Reading Time: < 1 minute

President Muhammadu Buhari and former President Olusegun Obasanjo met on Sunday, a few days after Obasanjo released a 20-page press statement advising the President not to seek re-election in 2019.

The two leaders met at the opening session of the 30th African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

 On sighting Buhari at the venue, Obasanjo who ruled Nigeria as an elected President between 1999 and 2007 approached the President and shook hands with him.

The two leaders exchanged pleasantries and engaged each other in a discussion that lasted about two minutes.

While the discussion was going on, a former military Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.), joined them.

The three thereafter posed for photographs.

Obasanjo, in a widely publicised press statement last week, gave a damning verdict on the   Buhari-led Federal Government.

Obasanjo made a case for what is now known as “The Third Force.”
