The meeting between Abdullahi, and Obasanjo was meant to agree on a possible consensus candidate.
The meeting, which also had in attendance two other NEF members deliberated about a suitable northern candidate.
They talked about a candidate that could attract massive support from all parts of the country in the 2019 elections.
It was learnt that the meetings were parts of the moves to unite elders of the six zones in the country to present a common front in the 2019 presidential election.
The meetings were also aimed at seeking solutions to security challenges in the country.
A source at the meeting told Punch that, “Ango Abdullahi actually visited Obasanjo in Abeokuta along with two other men.
“Their discussion, as you rightly guessed, bordered on the 2019 elections and the need to field a dynamic candidate who would be acceptable to the North and other regions of the country because the North is no longer comfortable with the current leadership.”
