BREAKING: Tinubu arrives Aso Rock to meet Buhari


The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has just arrived the Presidential Villa, Abuja for a scheduled meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Tinubu, clutching a book, arrived at about 4pm.

The party chief arrived the Presidential Villa alone.

The agenda of the meeting was not clear as of the time of filing this report

The meeting, however, is coming at a time the President is trying to resolve the crisis that followed the ruling party’s primaries across the country.

The President’s meeting with the APC leader came less than 24 hours after Mr Buhari hosted aggrieved APC aspirants to a dinner at the State House.

Those at the dinner included the governorship, National and State Assembly aspirants who failed to secure the party’s tickets in the forthcoming 2019 general elections, while the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiohmole, was conspicuously absent.

NAN gathered that the president’s meeting with Tinubu might not be unconnected with the issues raised by the aggrieved aspirants during their dinner with the president.

President Buhari had also met behind closed door with Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno.
