Former President Obasanjo Visits Aso Rock Villa Day After PDP Split (SEE PHOTOS)

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo was at the Aso Rock Villa today in a surprise visit barely 24 hours after the Peoples Democratic Party split into two shortly after the party's special convention in Abuja. More pics after the cut:

The former leader attended a church service in company of President Boni Yayi of Benin republic. Presidency sources did not disclose the reason Obasanjo visited today, especially because he was conspicously absent from the party's convention yesterday, but it was obvious that President Goodluck Jonathan might have sent for the former board of trustees chairman of the PDP with the aim to resolving the current crising rocking the party.

On another note, Mr. Obasanjo is also interested in keeping his former domestic aide, Andy Uba, as the PDP gubernatorial candidate in Anambra state as a condition for ending the current political feud with Mr. Jonathan.

After, the church service and a lunch date with President Jonathan, Mr. Obasanjo left the villa while President Jonathan and President Yayi went into a session to engage in bilateral talks.
