“Basically, we discussed about governance, the situation in the country, we discussed about our party, how our party should be strengthened and to take over leadership in as many states and also the federal government,” he said.

Responding, Obaseki  commended Atiku for his contributions to the advancement of the country’s democracy saying: “I cannot thank you enough for the leadership that you continue to provide; the counsel you gave me during my electioneering, the private conversations and the assistance you rendered to me when we joined the party.
