President Muhammadu Buhari and former President Olusegun Obasanjo met on Sunday at the ongoing African Union Summit, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, for the first time since Tuesday when Obasanjo issued a blistering statement, pointing out the deficiencies in Buhari’s administration and warned him not to seek reelection in 2019.
Naija News gathered that the two leaders met briefly just before the opening ceremony of the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union(AU).
It was learnt that AU named Buhari the “African Anti-Corruption Champion” and he was warming up to deliver a paper on the theme: “Winning the Fight Against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation,” when Obasanjo appeared before him.
Obasanjo first went round to exchange pleasantries with other African leaders attending the summit, before looking out for Buhari to greet him inside the Nelson Mandela Hall.
Thereafter, the two leaders became the center of attraction as they exchanged pleasantries and chatted for few minutes while journalists struggle to capture the exciting moment between the duo.
