In a recent public appearance that has ignited political intrigue, former President Olusegun Obasanjo was spotted sporting a cap adorned with the insignia of President Bola Tinubu.

This event, attended by African dignitaries, marked a significant moment given the historical divergence in political paths between the two prominent figures hailing from Nigeria’s Southwest geopolitical zone.

Truth Live News can confirm that Obasanjo and Tinubu have long been recognized for their contrasting political affiliations, which culminated in public discord during Obasanjo’s presidency and Tinubu’s tenure as Lagos State governor. However, the recent display of camaraderie through the ‘Tinubu cap’ suggests a potential shift in their relationship dynamics.

During the 2023 presidential elections, Obasanjo notably expressed support for Peter Obi, the Labour Party candidate, diverging from Tinubu’s aspirations. Despite this, Tinubu made a strategic visit to Obasanjo in Abeokuta, seeking endorsement, yet ultimately, Obasanjo stood by his endorsement of Obi.

The resurgence of Obasanjo wearing Tinubu-branded attire has sparked varied interpretations among political commentators and observers. Former presidential aide Reno Omokri labeled the footage as an “interesting realignment,” hinting at possible evolving alliances ahead of the 2027 elections.

The recent video suggests that both men have mended fences and may be forming an alliance ahead of the 2027 elections.

However, other pundits are not drawing any long term conclusions from it and saying it may be a subtle approval and appraisal of Tinubu’s 12 months in office.

Politics they say, is a game of shifting interests and permutations
