Sokoto State Governor, Aliyu Wamakko on Tuesday held a close door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Wamakko was said to have met with Obasanjo in his Hilltop Mansion where they held some discussions.

Sources say that the meeting between the Sokoto State Governor and Obasanjo was not unconnected with the ongoing political realignment in the country.

Wamakko was one of the five aggrieved governors of the PDP who recently defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress having fell out with President Goodluck Jonathan and the leadership of the ruling party..

A source, who pleaded anonymity said, issues concerning the PDP members in Sokoto who along with the governor recently defected to the opposition APC also came up during the meeting.

“The meeting between the Sokoto governor and former president Obasanjo was part of the ongoing consultations on the realignment of political forces in the country,” the source said.
