2023: Tinubu Holds A Closed-Door Meeting With Yahaya Bello
The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has just held a closed-door meeting.
The meeting is part of Tinubu’s visits to his opponents in the recently concluded APC presidential primaries to mend broken fences.
While majority of political observers have described the visits as “a reconciliatory move to pacify aggrieved aspirants in a bid to gain support of all APC members for Tinubu, others said the meeting might not be unconnected with Tinubu’s search for a running mate.
NewsOrient reported earlier that INEC’s deadline to all the presidential candidates to submit the names of their running mates is June 17.
During Tinubu’s visit to Yahaya Bello, he was accompanied by Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos); Bello Matawalle (Zamfara), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano) and the former Governor of Edo State and former National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, amongst others.
