  • Both leaders meet in closed doors for the first time since 2015

Politics Nigeria has gotten reliable information on the meeting between two former presidents, Goodluck Jonathan and Olusegun Obasanjo. Both leaders met on Friday to reconcile and mend their strained relationship.

A private helicopter conveyed the trio to the OBJ’s village, arriving at about 11 a.m. to meet the Ebora Owu who earlier drove there from his home in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Obasanjo took Jonathan around the village, introducing him to community leaders.

Before both men went behind closed-doors for a meeting, Turaki told Obasanjo that Jonathan had visited former Nigerian leaders, including Abdulsalami Abubakar and Ibrahim Babangida recently and had planned to visit Obasanjo during the Christmas holidays.

“He said since he was unable to make it to Baba’s place around Christmas period, he had to find time to do so before January ends,He believes it’s better late than never.”

It is not exactly clear what both men discussed during their closed-door meeting. It ended around 4:00 p.m.
