Headlinenews was in Abeokuta to witness the mammoth crowd that turned up to receive Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC Presidential Flagbearer for the 2023 Elections. Asiwaju Tinubu was received by Ogun Governor Dapo Abiodun and two former Governors- Olusegun Osoba and Otunba Gbenga Daniel.
Headlinenews recalls that Asiwaju Tinubu has had a frosty relationship with the Former President -Chief Olusegun Obasanjo since the issue of the Lagos State Local Government Revenue withheld by President Obasanjo for 2 years while Asiwaju Tinubu was the Governor of Lagos State 18 years ago!!!
Asiwaju only led the APC Presidential Campaign delegation with Muhammad Buhari in 2015 to visit Obasanjo for his endorsement and has never returned to visit Obasanjo in Abeokuta since 2015. Asiwaju Tinubu visited the Alake of Egbaland for Consultations before he declared his Presidential Ambition and met the APC delegates & stakeholders June 2022 when he made the famous Emilokan pronouncement before the 2022 Primary election.
All effort to invite Asiwaju Tinubu to Meet Obasanjo for Reconciliation proved abortive from both parties. Many dignitaries, Traditional Rulers, Leaders, Stakeholders have tried but to no avail as each party maintained their distance and refused to yield.
Headlinenews investigations revealed that the success story of this Reconciliation is attributed to none other than Princess Gloria Adebajo-Fraser. MFR. A National Awardee during Obasanjo’s regime and first female in Lagos State to be conferred with such a distinguished honour for commendable achievements and outstanding contributions to National Development.
Adebajo-Fraser served as a member of the Governing board of Unimaid for several years, Special Adviser in the Presidency during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan, a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council in 2019, and served on several committees in the Presidency. She is a renowned strategist and has handled complex challenging issues when required for the government. She is an Entrepreneur in various fields.
Headlinenews investigations further discovered that she was charged with this task as the National Coordinator of The National Patriots by those who realised that the Reconciliation of Obasanjo and Asiwaju constitutes the first step to Asiwaju’s success story and fence mending process in order to actualize his ambition. According to our correspondents, the dynamic iron lady swung into action and met with a few selected influential traditional rulers from the Southwest, and Obasanjo in order to apply a strategic approach to resolving the difference. Headlinenews was informed that it was a water tight arrangement and the Olubara of Ibara, was central to her strategy.
She gives God the glory for the success of the Reconciliation effort. Dapo Abiodun was instrumental to providing a suitable platform to the political actualisation of the Reconciliation for the public. It was a commendable arrangement. It came as a surprise to many as it was all organised covertly.
Headlinenews congratulates all those involved in this arrangement because the Holy Book says- “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
Headlinenews will provide more updates on this historic event. This Reconciliation means a lot to the success of Tinubu’s political ambition and has increased the unity of the Yorubas and the South, to accept, support & vote for Asiwaju.
Obasanjo’s influence cannot be undermined in Nigeria Nationwide and Internationally.
All APC members in Abeokuta turned out in style to welcome the illustrious son of Yorubaland in his political ambition to lead Nigeria in 2023 by God’s grace.

“He’s scheduled to visit President Olusegun Obasanjo at 10.00 am and address the people at the MKO Abiola Int’l Stadium immediately after,” Somorin disclosed.
Another statement signed by the APC State Chairman, Yemi Sanusi said “all Exco members and Party Chairmen are to attend promptly.”
The National Patriots commend our father, Leaders Olusegun Obasanjo & Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the successful reunion to collaborate for the best interest of Nigeria and Nigerians. We see both parties as National figures who have critical roles to play in the future of this country by ensuring a solid foundation for Nigeria’s sustainable development by God’s Grace. We pray for the Almighty God to grant them the wisdom, courage, health, strength, long life, presence of mind to lead us to an upward trajectory of development for prosperity so that the people shall experience better conditions of life.
No doubt that Asiwaju has a good plan for Nigeria and is also a good judge of character to put together an efficient team to govern the country. We support him in order to move the country towards meritocracy and ensure that the spirit of Patriotism is imbued in all citizens henceforth.
We need to unite in order to progress.
We pray for God Almighty to continue to guide us and protect the sovereignty of this Nation. Amen.
