OBJ, PMB Share Joke At AU Summit

By Abdul Tukur

A photo of President Muhammadu Buhari sharing a laugh with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo at the 30th African Union summit has caused a stir on social media.

With a recent chilling letter from Chief Obasanjo telling President Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019, many were surprised to see the two leaders laughing comfortably together.




Last week, Chief Obasanjo, a former military and democratically elected Head of State, wrote a letter saying he was no longer in full support of the current President of Nigeria, because he had failed to perform as expected.

When the Presidency responded by saying that the former President must have been too busy to acknowledge the positive achievements of this administration, the public thought this would cause more friction among the two.

But it seems like it did not. Both men, laughed easily on meeting one another today at the African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa.

Members of the Cabinet such as Abubakar Malami, SAN, the Attorney General of Federation and Minister of Justice, Geoffrey Onyema, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Hadi Sirika, the Minister of State for (Aviation) were also giggling in the background.

Though, the reason for all their giggle is not known, social media users have taken a few wild guess.
