Two days after former President Olusegun Obasanjo released a statement condemning the Buhari administration, both men have met at the Council of State meeting taking place in Abuja.

It is the first time they would be meeting since the former president began to publicly criticise the Buhari administration.
In a statement on Sunday, entitled ‘Points for Concern and Action’, Obasanjo slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over alleged intimidation of those perceived to be critics of his government.

He said the President lacks that capacity to offer Nigeria what it deserves at this point in time.

The elder statesman also accused President Buhari of returning the country to the era of late General Sani Abacha and asked Nigerians to elect only leaders that can put Nigeria on the path of progress.

In a swift reaction, the presidency said that it would teach Obasanjo and PDP a political lesson in the forthcoming presidential elections.

Today, however, both men were seen shaking hands as the National Council of State meeting kicked off in Abuja.

Others in attendance are the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and some Governors.

Former Heads of State, Ernest Shonekan, Abdulsalami Abubakar, Former Chief Justices of Nigeria as well as the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, are also present.
