President Buhari and former president Obasanjo had a warm handshake at the meeting. This is contrary to public expectations as a result of the open letter the former president wrote to Buhari about 48 hours ago where he alleged that the Buhari led government was planning to rig 2019 elections and compared the government to that of the late Head of State, General Sanni Abacha.

But the Presidency responded to Obasanjo that he was sick and need to consult his doctors according to a press release by Shehu Garba, a Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media, and Publicity.

The Council of State meeting is constitutionally empowered to advise the President on the affairs of the country.
