Tinubu woos Yahaya Bello, to announce running mate



Yahaya Bello tinubu

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress and former Governor of Lagos State has held a closed-door meeting with Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, in what political observers said was part of reconciliatory moves to pacify aggrieved aspirants of the APC presidential ticket.

Tinubu was accompanied to the meeting on Friday by Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos); Bello Matawalle (Zamfara); and Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano).

A former governor of Edo State and former national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, is also in the entourage.

It was, however, not clear if the issue of Tinubu’s running mate would be part of the agenda.

Earlier before then, President Buhari had received the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, at his official residence inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Tinubu was accompanied by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.

Earlier the President had urged the Progressives Governors Forum through its Chairman, Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State, to rally round Tinubu to ensure victory in next year’s election.

Buhari made the appeal in a letter addressed to Bagudu.
