Fwd: 2015 Elections: Mark, Tinubu In Closed-door Meeting With Obasanjo

In what appears to be a strong preparation for the 2015 general elections, Senate President, David Mark and former Governor of Lagos, Bola Tinubu, on Friday held separate closed-door meetings with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta the Ogun state capital.

The two politicians who spoke at different times with newsmen said the issues discussed centred on the state of the country.

Tinubu who came before the Senate President said his discusion with Obasanjo was based on some of the former president’s boys who are seeking elective seats in the 2015 general election, especially the presidency.



    “We are here to pay homage to our former President and discuss with him because he has a number of influences in the political sphere” . He said.

    “We need to talk to find out his thinking about Nigeria and the future. We need to seek his observation on some of his former boys who are running for presidency in our party”. Tinubu noted.

    Mark who also spoke with newsmen after the meeting described the former president as the father of the nation with a wealth of experience.

    “We discussed issues that will move Nigeria forward because Chief Obasanjo’s love for Nigeria is unquantifiable. So, we had a good discussion”. Mark said.
