Former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday shocked President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience at the church wedding of President Jonathan’s niece, Inebharapu, in Abuja.
His presence at the National Christian Centre venue of the wedding also caught many guests unawares in view of last week’s exchange of insults between both men.
Obasanjo had fired the first shot when, at a meeting with women leaders in the Southwest at his Abeokuta residence, accused the Jonathan administration of squandering $25billion from the nation’s foreign reserves.
That was a few weeks after claiming in his latest book, My Watch, that the Jonathan administration and the National Assembly were involved in monumental corruption.
President Jonathan himself hit back on Wednesday, saying some senior citizens behave and talk like motor park touts.
Obasanjo was accompanied to the wedding by Senator Andy Uba, among other associates, drawing applause from guests.
President Jonathan and his wife Patience exchanged pleasantries with Obasanjo, calling him ‘our father’ and also thanking him for gracing the occasion.
