Barely a week after his controversial letter, the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo had a personal contact with President Muhammadu Buhari when the two met at the ongoing African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The two leaders met briefly in the Nelson Mandela plenary hall of the African union Commission, just before the opening ceremony of the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU).

Obasanjo first went round to exchange pleasantries with other African leaders attending the summit, before looking out for President Buhari.

The former President created a scene when he walk up to and shook hands with President Buhari, to the admiration of everyone in the hall.

Their brief pleasantries immediately became a sensation as photo Journalists made frantic efforts to capture the moment.

Before Obasanjo went to pay respect to President Buhari, another former President, Abdulsalam Abubakar also took time to exchange pleasantries with President Buhari.

Obasanjo had stirred up controversies in Nigeria when he recently released a 13-page statement accusing Buhari of under-performance and therefore should not seek re-election in 2019.
