The reactions have followed the meeting held by a national leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
Nigeria Newspaper reports that Atiku met Saturday with former Lagos Governor Bola Tinubu in Minna.
The leaders, who met in Minna, Niger state, were in a cordial mood while exchanging jokes and chatting.
Atiku was the presidential candidate of Nigeria’s main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), during the 2019 elections.
The brief meeting between both members of the opposition caused the reaction in the social networks of some Nigerians.
Some Nigerians hinted at an agenda for 2023, even when they referred to a meeting between Obasanjo and the governor of the state of Kaduna, Nasir El-Rufai, days ago.
Here are some comments gathered by Nigeria people from Twitter:
@Kayalabi “I hope the picture of Atiku and Tinubu being cordial when they met at a function will help Fanatics realize politicians are not worth dying for. When their interests align they are friends when it doesn’t they insult each other! Let’s borrow ourselves brain.”
@Arogbodovincent “Buhari’s children will soon come out with narrative; ‘thieves are regrouping for 2023’ just because Tinubu visited Atiku.”
