BREAKING: Tinubu Storms Aso Rock, Goes Into Closed-Door Meeting With Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari is in a meeting with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who stormed the Aso Presidential Villa in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), this Monday afternoon, January 10, 2022.
Though the agenda of the meeting is not known, it was learnt that it may not be unconnected with the disagreements on the delay to fix a definite date for the APC National Convention.
Tinubu is believed to be a strong contender for the APC presidential ticket ahead of 2023 election.
Last Friday, Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, met the President over the coming convention.
Shortly after his meeting, the APC caretaker chairman and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, also met the President over what sources said the current development on the party convention.
In an interview the President granted to NTA, he had warned his party to take the issue of convention seriously.
APC members have been expressing concern over the coming convention and pressure has also been mounted on the party leadership over the delay in the conduct of the convention slated for February.
