BUHARI HOLDS SECRET TALKS WITH TINUBU IN LONDON

 

President Muhammadu Buhari in London on Sunday met with a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu.

President Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, disclosed this on his Twitter handle,@BashirAhmad.

“President Muhammadu Buhari receives National leader of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu (Jagaba) today (Sunday) in London,” Ahmad stated.

The presidential aide, however, did not disclose what Buhari and Tinubu discussed during the meeting.

Before the president departed for London last Monday, he had, during the National Executive Committee meeting of the APC, announced his intention to seek reelection in 2019.

President Buhari left Abuja for London more than one week ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings (CHOGM) scheduled for April 18-20.

The Presidency had, in a statement issued penultimate Sunday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Malam Garba Shehu, described Buhari’s visit to the United Kingdom as official.
The presidential aide had at that time stated that Buhari was due to hold discussions on Nigeria-British relations with Prime Minister Mrs Theresa May.

Shehu had also said the president would also meet the Chief Executive Officer of Royal Dutch Plc, Mr. Ben van Beurden in connection with Shell and other partners’ plan to invest $15 billion in Nigeria’s oil industry.
The president had last Wednesday, in the United Kingdom met with the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby.
