Tinubu, Buhari, Other APC Leaders to Visit Obasanjo
The All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders are planning to have discussions with former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo as soon he returns from his trip abroad.
According to a party source, the meeting with Obasanjo is seen as very important and strategic considering his perceived influence and link with the leadership of the PDP splinter group and the G-7 governors.
He disclosed that the APC lobby team has been on the trail of the former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) before now but missed an opportunity to hold talks with him last week before his trip to Hong Kong.
Among those billed to meet Obasanjo at his Ota residence are the former head of state, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rdt), former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, party’s interim national chairman, Chief Bisi Akande and erstwhile National Chairman of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP), Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu.
Meanwhile, the party has asked the three committees on Contact, Mobilisation and Fund Raising to swing into action immediately.
It specially instructed its contact committee headed by the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomohle to commence measures to attract more prominent personalities into the party’s fold, taking advantage of the spill-over effects of the raging crisis in the PDP is having in the states..
A member of the contact committee and former national chairman of PDP, Chief Audu Ogbeh, who spoke on the mandate, said the committee has been charged to go out and canvass for new members, reaching out to the high and mighty in the process.
