Earlier today, President Muhammadu Buhari and former President Olusegun Obasanjo met briefly at the 30th African Union summit in Addis Ababa just a few days after Obasanjo asked the President not to re-contest in 2019.
Both leaders appeared to be happy as they shook hands and laughed together but Nigerians on social media are interpreting the photographs in different ways.
President Buhari and President Obasanjo met today in Addis Ababa. Their first meeting after Obasanjo’s #RedCard to Buhari. They needed General Abdulsalami Abubakar as a referee so they do not fight. pic.twitter.com/SKNetYIpPq

Obasanjo: Did you read where I suggested Coalition for Nigeria?
Buhari: That’s smart, Baba. Now they’re not even talking about PDP as an alternative.
Obasanjo: Sorry, you said I hit you hard, it had to look real.
Abdulsalami: Guys, we’re in public. Let’s do this in the hotel. pic.twitter.com/sDjplvrWZ1

There’s this adage that says its easier to destroy than to build. That means it can take u a second or day to destroy but can never take u a second or day to build it
Now what took PDP/Obasanjo/Jonathan 16 years to destroy u expect APC/Buhari to build it in 2 and half years. Haa

Continue making enemies over politicians.

Social media is glad to have you. One quick one, what do you mean by a third force when you admitted to knowing @MBuhari‘s abilities yet, preferred him to @GEJonathan? @Chief_Obasanjohow do I trust you when you brought this calamity on Nigeria?
