Ejes Gist Newspaper reports that the Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Sen. Bola Tinubu met in a meeting that was made public by House Speaker Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila.
Obasanjo made supportive remarks about Tinubu’s aspiration, Victory and even prayed for the APC presidential candidate, according to Gbajabiamila in a statement made on Thursday while speaking at the Surulere Local Government Area (LGA) APC meeting in Surulere, Lagos.
“We were eight people, including Asiwaju Tinubu, when we went to Obasanjo’s house because we didn’t want many people to find out about the meeting,” he remarked. Therefore, Obasanjo and five other members of his team were to meet us.
But when we arrived, we discovered something pleasantly surprising: a sizable group of our supporters were waiting for us at Obasanjo’s home.
As a result, Obasanjo instructed Asiwaju Tinubu to choose three supporters from his camp, and he himself would choose three to meet with.
He claimed that he, Chief Bisi Akande, Osoba, and Asiwaju were present at the meeting and that Obasanjo told them that Tinubu would win.
“Obasanjo spoke for a while, making us all happy. He gave our candidate a pat on the back, treated him like a brother, and he prayed a lot for him, said Gbajabiamila.
He added that Obasanjo’s meeting with Tinubu gave him confidence that he would win in 2023.
Meanwhile, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday asked the Action Alliance Party to present its witnesses in court on October 12 to establish a certificate forgery suit brought against the All Progressives Congress (APC), Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In the lawsuit, the Action Alliance Party is requesting that Bola Tinubu be disqualified from the 2023 elections due to an alleged certificate forgery.
The order was made on Thursday when Justice Obiora Egwuatu set a new date of October 12 to allow the parties to the lawsuit to finish filing their legal documents and exchanging them as required by law before the adjourned date.
In order to strengthen his defence, Tinubu, who is the main defendant in the lawsuit alleging certificate forgery, has retained the services of Senior Advocate of Nigeria Mr. Babatunde Ogala.
