President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday evening, received the new standard-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, at his residence, Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
The meeting came barely 24 hours after the former Lagos State Governor acquired 1,271 votes to clinch the party’s presidential ticket.
Tinubu, who was accompanied by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, visited Buhari for the first time since he emerged as the flagbearer.
Earlier, the President had urged the Progressives Governors Forum through its Chairman, Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State, to rally around Tinubu to ensure victory in the next year’s election.
Buhari made the appeal in a letter addressed to Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State and Chairman, Progressives Governor Forum, on Thursday evening.
