President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday met with House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara and Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.
DailyTrust Newspaper reports that Dogara and Tambuwal were driven to the forecourt of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja in a single vehicle.
The closed-door meeting, which took place inside the president’s office, lasted about one hour.
When approached by State House correspondents after the meeting, Dogara and Tambuwal refused to disclose their mission of visiting the president.
Asked if the meeting was about the House of Representatives, Tambuwal, who is a former speaker of the House, responded: “Not at all.”
Governor Tambuwal, however, stated that he and Dogara visited the president to give him support.
Asked if the meeting discussed the current economic recession and the proposed sale of assets, Tambuwal simply said: “I’ve already aired my views on the sale of assets.”
On whether the ‘feud’ between the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the APC National Chairman John Odigie-Oyegun was discussed during the meeting, Tambuwal said: “I don’t know about that.”
