President Goodluck Jonathan and former president Olusegun Obasanjo have apparently put aside their differences as they were said to have met in Kenya yesterday.
The friction between the duo became obvious from a letter sent by the former president to President Jonathan.
All signs of their dispute were however absent yesterday as they met in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital to join in the nation’s 50th Independence anniversary celebrations.
The Nation reports:
While Obasanjo had written a letter with grave allegations against Jonathan, the latter had dismissed the letter as self-serving and highly-provocative.
But prior to the commencement of ceremony at the Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani, Nairobi, Kenya, Obasanjo paid a surprise visit to Jonathan.
He visited Jonathan at the Intercontinental Hotel, Nairobi where they had a private breakfast together.
At the venue of the event, Obasanjo, who sat quietly, was making calls on his mobile telephone at interval throughout the event.
Speaking at the event, Jonathan called on all Kenyans to unite together.
He said that there was no alternative to unity if Kenyans must move their nation forward.
The destiny of Kenya, he said, lies with its people and as such the people must strive hard to take their country to a greater height.
