Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and some northern leaders led by a prominent Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, are currently in a closed-door meeting at the Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The meeting was confirmed by Obasanjo’s media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi.
When asked to confirm the report on the meeting, Akinyemi said, “It’s not that the meeting was held, it is still going on and it’s not just between the two of them, it’s a stakeholders meeting holding at his residence here in Abeokuta.”
Findings revealed that the meeting may not be unconnected with the state of insecurity in the country.
The prominent religious leader has been holding series of meetings with various stakeholders including bandits as part of efforts to solve the security challenge.
