Olanrewaju posited that Nigerians are eager to see two like-minds working together to revive the country, adding that nothing is impossible in politics though, but opined that the meeting of Obi and Atiku was just two friends having a courtesy meeting.

APC spreading rumour about Atiku, Obi’s meeting

He alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) spread most speculations about the meeting between the former PDP presidential candidate and his counterpart in the Labour Party.

His statement reads:

“H.E. Alhaji Abubakar and H.E. Peter Obi are friends and brothers. I don’t see any permutations yet, as it’s still very premature. It’s normal for two friends to meet and spend time together.

“I understand Nigerians’ anticipation and passion to see two brilliant minds working together in the future. In politics, everything is possible, but in my opinion, two friends met, and I don’t think we should read too much into the media speculations, especially from the ruling APC.

“Like I said, I would be happy to see them work together in the future, but as it stands, it’s all hands on deck.”

Atiku speaks on Kano royal tussle

TheTalk.NG earlier reported that Atiku Abubakar, the former vice president, has reacted to the royal tussle between Muhammadu Sanusi and Aminu Ado Bayero in Kano.

The ex-PDP presidential candidates condemned the act of deploying the military on the matter, saying such would upset the peace and security in the state.

According to Atiku, President Bola Tinubu’s administration needs to be reminded that Kano is known for peace and security, and an attempt to destabilise it would be defended.
