Osinbajo Meets Obasanjo Ahead Of High-level Dialogue
Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday, played host to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Ogun State.
Osinbajo’s visit to the elder statesman was coming barely 24hours after the conclusion of the 2022 National Convention of the All Progressive Congress, APC at the Eagles Square in Abuja, Naija News reports.
Osinbajo was received by Obasanjo ahead of his participation in a high-level dialogue organized by the Coalition for Dialogue on Africa (CoDA).
The dialogue entitled ‘West Africa: Rising To The Challenge Of Consolidating Democratic Governance’, is expected to witness the presence of top political wigs across the board and will hold at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta today through Tuesday, March 29.
Naija News understands that Osinbajo arrived at OOPL premises at exactly 10:24 am this morning.
Escorted by the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, and others, Osinbajo was received by Chief Obasanjo as they proceeded to the venue prepared for the meeting.
Meanwhile, the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has expressed confidence that he would clinch the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress in 2023.
The Presidential aspirant is not giving up on his ambition despite the new National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Adamu emerging from the North-Central which is his (Bello’s) geopolitical region.
Bello on Monday said he believes he can defeat the likes of Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the party, David Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi State, Rochas Okorocha, former Governor of Imo State to clinch the presidential ticket of the ruling party.
Naija News reports that the Kogi State Governor while speaking with Channels TV earlier today said other zoning issues will be sorted out after he emerges as President in 2023.
He added that he would emerge as the flagbearer of the party if it decides to use consensus or voting in its presidential primary.
