President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Adamu and the Party Secretary, Dr Iyiola Omisore, at the State House, Abuja.
The duo arrived at the Aso Rock Villa a few minutes before 5 pm, and were ushered into the President’s office shortly afterwards, the Punch reports.
The meeting follows the widely reported distancing of the party from the selection principal officers of the 10th National Assembly announced on Tuesday by Senate President, Godswill Akpabio and House of Representatives Speaker, Rep. Tajudeen Abbas.
At a meeting with the Progressives Governors’ Forum led by Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State on Tuesday, Adamu said “I am just hearing as a rumour now from the online media that there have been some announcements in the Senate and House of Representatives.”
“The national headquarters of the party, the NWC has not given any such information or communicated about the choice of offices.
“And until we formally resolve and communicate with them (NASS leadership) in writing which is the norm and practice (it is not our intention to break away from traditions), whatever announcement is done either by the President of the Senate, Deputy Senate President, Speaker or Deputy Speaker is not from this secretariat”, he further said.
