Obasanjo and Tinubu are known to belong to different political affiliations despite coming from the same Southwest geopolitical zone and the former president did not hide his opposition to Tinubu’s emergence as president and was believed to have overtly supported the aspiration of Mr Peter Obi.

During the 2023 presidential election, the former President supported the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Before the election, Tinubu had visited Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State, while seeking an endorsement, but the former President opted for Obi.

The former President had criticised the Tinubu’s administration’s handling of its ongoing reforms and the coup d’etat in Niger Republic. reports that Obidients as supporters of Peter Obi are called have yet to digest the implication of the meeting and have yet to react to the apparent shift of the most notable supporter of their principal.
