The All Progressives Congress presidential aspirant, Rabiu Kwankwaso, on Friday held a closed-door meeting with the former President Olusegun Obasanjo, at his Hilltop presidential residence in Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.
His meeting also with Obasanjo was not unconnected with his presidential ambition in 2015.
Kwankwaso had earlier met with the executive council of the Ogun State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, where he sought their support to win the party’s ticket at the primaries.
He said, “Let me assure you that APC in 2015 will have the capacity to curtail the problems in the North-East and recover seized states from Boko Haram. By the grace of God, change is necessary in 2015, let’s join hands.”
Kwankwaso, who lamented the security crisis in the country, said thousands of Nigerians had been displaced, turning them to refugees in neighbouring countries of Chad and Cameroun.
The Kano State Governor, a former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, pointed out that for peace to return to the country, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party must be voted out.
He also appealed to the Ogun State Chapter of the APC to put its house in order in the interest of the party and forthcoming general elections.
Chairman of APC in the state, Mr. Roqeeb Adeniji, said the party would give him the necessary support.
He said the party was well grounded in the state, in spite of the crisis which led to the exit of some members, but added that the party would work to bring back those who had left.
Adeniji said despite the crisis the party was going through, they would win the governorship election convincingly and also repeat the same feat at the federal level by winning the Presidency.
