Former vice president and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; and governor-elect in Oyo State, Seyi Makinde,  held separate closed-door meetings with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Thursday .

Our correspondent gathered that Atiku arrived at Obasanjo Presidential Library around 1pm  and spent one hour with his former boss.

Obasanjo’s media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, confirmed the meeting.

Akinyemi, however, described the meeting as private.

However, a source at the meeting told our correspondent that Atiku came to seek further advice from Obasanjo on the next step to take after his loss at the poll.

Meanwhile, Makinde  and Obasanjo held another closed-door meeting two hours after Atiku  had left.

Makinde was  reported to have 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 be 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.

The governor-elect reportedly said the visit was to appreciate and seek wisdom from the elder statesman.
