gen-obasanjoSince the Dec.2 letter written to President Goodluck Jonathan by former President Olusegun Obasanjo leaked to the media few days ago, loyalists of the two camps have been meeting to strategise on how to handle the backlash.

While Preisdent Jonathan’s aides have met on two occasions to prepare the president’s response to the letter, Obasanjo on his party met with some of his loyalist behind closed doors yesterday.

No fewer than 40 chieftains across the six states of South West zone including the suspended national secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola met with Obasanjo his hilltop residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
