The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has met with governors elected on the APC platform in Abuja.
This is coming hours after Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, who is seen within the political circles as Tinubu’s political son having served as commissioner in his Lagos State cabinet between 1999 and 2007, declared his intention to run for president.
The meeting took place at the Kebbi State Government Lodge, in Abuja, as Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, who is also the Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum (PGF), led his colleagues to the meeting.
Sources confirmed that at least 14 governors of APC, including 10 of them that earlier met with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in his Aso Rock official residence prior to his declaration, were in attendance at the meeting with Tinubu.
It was gathered that Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, who returned from London early Monday morning, has joined his colleagues to meet with Tinubu.
