OBASANJO-ATIKU1Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and his erstwhile deputy, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, demonstrated Tuesday that all was well between them when they met at Minna International Airport, Niger State, and hugged each other.

The ex-president was in Minna to visit former military President, Ibrahim Babangida, who just returned from a two-month long medical vacation in Germany, while Atiku was in the town to witness the public declaration ceremony of a fellow All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirant, Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah.

Obasanjo, who arrived in an aircraft with registration number G DOUR alongside Senator Andy Uba, Chief Ayo Fasawe, and an unidentified lady at about 5:30pm, was about to be conveyed out from the airport when his attention was drawn to the presence of Atiku.

The former vice president, who was already seated awaiting clearance for his flight to take-off, had to stop the pilot, alighted and headed straight to his former boss’ car to pay homage.

The two leaders hugged each other after some minutes of banter.

Obasanjo, thereafter, was driven to the uphill residence of Gen. Babangida in company of the former military president’s eldest son, Mohammed.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
