…Other Aspirants Jittery Over Turnout Of Governors For The Meeting

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, national leader and leading presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), held a closed door meeting with no fewer than 14 APC governors in Abuja on Monday.

The meeting, posted on the Twitter handle of Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s media aide @tunderahmanu reads “Asíwájú Bola Tinubu presently at a meeting with APC governors in Abuja.”

This meeting was coming on the heels of similar meeting held by the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, in his Akinola Aguda official residence on Sunday. The vice-president was able to pool for the meeting in his residence less than ten APC governors.

t was after the meeting that Osinbajo announced his ambition to aspire for the presidency of the country through a video telecast earlier on Monday.

The Liberation News reliably gathered that the well attended meeting by Tinubu is meant to sell his candidacy to the governors believed to be key stakeholders in the weeks preceding the party’s preparation to choose its presidential candidate.

The meeting also sends the right signals to those plotting against him that he is firmly in charge of the party’s political turfs.

Some of the governors at the meeting with Tinubu include Governors Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna, Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, Abdulrazaq of Kwara who reportedly flew in from the United Kingdom this morning and Simon Lalong of Plateau among others.

The governors in attendance pledged their support for Tinubu whom they see as veritable political product to fly the flag of APC in the 2023 presidential election.

The meeting in Tinubu’s residence has sent jitters down the spine of other aspirants in the ruling party.Reliable sources confided in The Liberation News that some of those aspirants are already regretting ever coming out to declare their presidential ambitions.

As the race to occupy Nigeria’s presidency in 2023 inches closer, some of the aspirants from APC include: Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi and Rochas Okorocha, former governor of Imo state.
