The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, is holding a closed-door meeting with the Deputy National Chairman (North) of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abubakar Kyari.
It was gathered that the meeting between the duo is taking place at Tinubu’s Abuja residence, in the Asokoro area of the federal capital territory, to kickstart the beginning of consultations on the party’s choice for the President of the Senate, Deputy Senate President, Speaker, Deputy Speaker of the house of representatives, and some other key seats in the national assembly.
According to a close source, the meeting is expected to be followed by a sequence of engagements with the National Working Committee of the APC, the party lawmakers-elect, and aspirants for the NASS principal officers.
He clarified that Tinubu is only meeting some relevant politicians and lawmakers, whom he is going to work with after his inauguration on May 29, 2023.
“Asiwaju and the party know they have a short time before the inauguration hence the need to commence an early negotiation. As you must have observed, the president-elect is meeting only relevant politicians and lawmakers that he is going to work with after his inauguration on May 29.
“I believe all these moves are to ensure the APC leadership does not witness a repeat of the coup that brought in Saraki-Dogara leadership.
“We trust in him, to be different from the outgoing administration of President Muhammadu Buhari because of his proven track record,” he said.
