Again Tinubu, Akande meet Buhari at Aso Villa

Barely three weeks after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, an All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Senator Bola Tinubu, and the pioneer interim chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, on Tuesday again had a meeting with the president at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The duo had on January 23 met with President Buhari few hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo in a statement called on President Buhari not to contest the 2019 general election for alleged woeful performance of his administration characterized by nepotism and incompetence.

The meeting also came few hours after the co-chairman of the National Peace Committee, General Abdulsalam Abubakar, met with the president.

While the agenda for the meeting is yet to be known, there are insinuations that it may not be unconnected with Buhari’s recent appointment of Tinubu as leader of the APC reconciliation team with the mandate to ensure peace exist among aggrieved members of the party across the country.

There has not been any signal yet that Tinubu and his team have started the onerous task of uniting aggrieved members of the party since their appointment last month.
