Photos: Obasanjo visits Jonathan in Bayelsa

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo paid a visit to one of his successor Goodluck Jonathan at his home in Bayelsa on Monday.

Obasanjo who frequently criticised Jonaghan in the build up to the 2015 election, eventually endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari. He has however also fallen out with Buhari.

The visit is believed to be part of the former president’s mission to boost a coalition that can defeat Buhari in next year’s poll.

Sharing the news, Jonathan posted this on Facebook: “Hosting former president Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday. I am firmly of the view that Nigeria will progress faster when great leaders, like President Obasanjo and other statesmen, plant trees whose shade they know they may never enjoy. A view shared by this great Nigerian and even greater son of Africa.”
