Tinubu meets Buhari in Aso Rock

Bola Tinubu

President Muhammadu Buhari has met behind closed doors with former Lagos State governor Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that one of the president’s personal photographers Sunday Aghaeze confirmed this in pictorial reports on Tuesday night in Abuja.

NAN reports that the agenda of the meeting between the president and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report.

Tinubu had on Friday picked the ruling APC presidential nomination and expression of interest forms at its national secretariat in Abuja.

James Faleke, a member of the House of Representatives, representing Ikeja Federal Constituency, picked the forms for the APC national leader who had earlier informed the president of his presidential ambition in 2023.

Mr. Faleke was accompanied by former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Babachir Lawal and hundreds of members of the Tinubu Support Groups (TSG) to the party’s secretariat.

Tinubu had recently returned from Saudi Arabia where he performed the lesser hajj alongside some of his political associates and family members.
