2015: Tambuwal in secret meeting with Obasanjo

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, had a secret meeting with the former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, at his Hilltop home, Abeokuta, capital of Ogun State on Tuesday. Tambuwal who arrived the former president’s residence around 5.30pm left around 6.18pm. Our correspondent gathered that the visit might not be unconnected with the speaker’s ambition in 2015.

 It is being rumoured that he was nurturing a presidential ambition. However, his media aide, Mr. Imam Imam, said Tambuwal and Obasanjo only rubbed minds on the state of the nation, and how to move it forward. He said, “You know Baba is a father to all in the country. The visit was a consultation.
 “It is about rubbing minds on how to move the country forward, and make Nigeria better.” Asked whether the visit was in connection with Tambuwal’s alleged presidential ambition in 2015, Imam said he could not confirm that because it was a closed door meeting between Tambuwal and Obasanjo. He said, “I could not say anything on that because it was a closed door meeting. About the presidential ambition, that also I could not comment on. Let’s wait till 2015 and then we will address that.”
