According to reports, the meeting reviewed the ongoing zonal campaigns of the party, which was said to be a precursor for the state-by-state campaign that would follow.

Concise News understands that Obasanjo used the opportunity to settle the rift between Atiku and a former Governor of Adamawa State Admiral Murtala Nyako (retd.).

Nyako, a former Chief of Naval Staff, was a member of the PDP before he defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, instead of returning to the PDP like Atiku, Nyako and his son, Senator Abdul-Aziz Nyako, joined the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

The former president, according to Punch, was said to have been worried about the cacophony of voices from the home state of Atiku in particular about his presidential ambition and decided to step in and settle the rifts.

Apart from Nyako, it was also learned that Obasanjo intervened in the alleged misunderstanding between Atiku and his former aide while serving as the Vice President Dr Umar Ardo.
