Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s son, Olujonwo met President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja and pledged to campaign for his re-election. The younger Obasanjo, son of Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo,is going contrary to the position of his father, who is vehemently against Buhari. Recall that Obasanjo had advised Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019.
The meeting was held inside Buhari’s official residence at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, posted pictures of the meeting on his Facebook account.
Adesina wrote, “President Buhari receives in courtesy call Olujonwon Obasanjo (son of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo) in State House on 1st Nov 2018”.
Olujonwon has been supporting Buhari’s re-election. He had earlier visited the Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Office in Abuja.
Obasanjo also recently endorsed the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the election.
