Buhari in private meetings with Tinubu, Saraki, Dogara

Tinubu and Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met behind closed doors with a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that before his meeting with Mr. Tinubu, Mr. Buhari had earlier met with the Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Dogara Yakubu.

The two separate meetings between the president and his visitors took place at the new Banquet hall.

President Buhari, had on October 26, met with the leaders of the National Assembly after the cancellation of the planned dinner for lawmakers in the Presidential Villa.

The president was to host the lawmakers to dinner at the new Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja, by 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.

He, however, met behind closed doors at his official residence with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, with the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo and some presidential aides in attendance.

President Buhari had earlier met with President Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire, who was on official visit to Nigeria.

Mr. Ouattara had since returned to Abidjan, the Ivorian capital. (NAN)

    Elections are fast approaching so the outreach to secure renomination has begun. Let’s see if Tinubu and Saraki will let themselves be fooled twice after their experience at the hands of Buhari’s CPC faction of the APC coalition. Atiku is out already but for the announcement.

    • So oju abe niko

      It is just the PT toying with you with a misleading headline. The Dogara/Saraki meeting last weekend was a routine government business meeting, while Tinubu’s (likely) political meeting took place today, but the PT misleading attention grabbing headline insinuated a meeting involving all 4 personality at the same time.

      There’s been no fooling of anyone. In fact, Mr. Buhari’s henchmen, having shown their true hands so early during this first term, will make Mr. Tinubu to strongly negotiate even a better, more ironclad deal (for his political block and ecosystem) with Buhari going forward.

      That’s what political sagacity is all about, believe me.

      You seem not to understand what’s really going on.

    Buhari needs to seize the opportunity to tell them that there will be no restructuring or devolution power to States until North finds oil in the North. And, that the North will continue hold toothless bull dog Southerner’s oil resources until North finds oil in the North. And, the North don’t give a rat ass if Southerners do not like it.
    And, that, that is the stand of the North.

    • Suleiman Alatise

      That is your stand, cause you are not a spokesman for the North.

      Remember they have been sucking oil to Kaduna refinery for a long time. When their wells are filled, they will discover oil.

    Tinubu! Don’t fall for the sneaky nepotic old wolf! He doesn’t care about Nigeria, only fulani and hausa domination! He has shown his true colors, used you and dumped you in the gutters, don’t be deceived! Stop selling the birth rights of future generations to these do no goods parasites!

      You need not tell Jagaban… Remeber he is Jagaban…

    Government of thieves, ALL thieves, no exception. Buhari is a disappointment

  • Mizch

    Their laughter appears psychotic and sadistic. Who is really amusing them? The sufferings of Nigerians? Or some laughing gas in the office? Remember Kachikwu and Barua laughter after going into that office to see Sai Baba.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Buhari and Tinubu have one thing in common: academic certificate issues. It is only in a useless country like Nigeria that this duo would be pulling the strings. Shame on all of us.
