The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is billed to meet former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Wednesday (today).
The meeting, it was gathered, is part of Tinubu’s ongoing consultation and fence-mending process to actualise his presidential bid.
The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Dapo Abiodun, Kunle Somorin, disclosed this in a short statement on Wednesday.
“Learnt that the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be visiting Abeokuta, Ogun State today, Wednesday, August 17, 2022.
“He’s scheduled to visit President Olusegun Obasanjo and address the people at the MKO Abiola Int’l Stadium immediately after,” he said.
Also, another statement signed by the state chairman of APC, Yemi Sanusi, said: “All Exco members and Party Chairmen are to attend promptly.”
“Asiwaju Visits Ogun State: This is to inform you that the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be visiting Abeokuta, Ogun State today, Wednesday, August 17, 2022.
“All Exco members and Party Chairmen are to attend promptly,” Sanusi’s statement read.
This is the third time Tinubu would be visiting Ogun State over his presidential bid.
In February, he met all the paramount rulers in the state, and intimated them of his ambition.
On June 2, Tinubu met with the APC delegates in Abeokuta, where he revealed the roles he played in enthroning President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
During his previous visits to the state, Tinubu didn’t visit Obasanjo, just as a planned meeting with the former president in May was later postponed.
It was learnt that the former Lagos State Governor’s planned visit is to rally Obasanjo’s support for his presidential bid.
