Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State are currently meeting former president Olusegun Obasanjo at his penthouse in Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, OOPL, in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Mr Osinbajo’s chopper landed in the OOPL premises and he was welcomed by Mr Abiodun. Afterwards, they headed to the Library where Mr Obasanjo and security officials received them.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt that part of the reasons for Mr Osinbajo’s visit is to declare open a programme tagged, ‘West Africa: Rising to the challenge of Consolidating Democratic Governance.’

The programme was said to have been organised by the Coalition for Dialogue on Africa (CoDA).

We will provide details of the meeting later.

There have been speculations that Mr Osinbajo would seek the ticket of the All Progressives Congress to contest the 2023 presidential election.

Although he has not personally declared his intention, his loyalists, led by his political adviser, Babafemi Ojudu, have been touring the country, selling his candidature.

It is unclear if Mr Osinbajo would during this meeting notify Mr Obasanjo of his intention to seek the nation’s topmost position. But a number of other presidential hopefuls have visited the former president in the past months.
