On Friday, All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential house.
Party leaders in attendance were Kashim Shettima, the APC’s vice presidential candidate, and Abdullahi Adamu, the party’s national chairman.
Ahmad Lawan, the president of the Senate, Atiku Bagudu, the governor of Kebbi, and Idris Wase, the deputy speaker of the house of representatives, were also present.
The meeting’s specifics are not yet revealed.
Concerns were raised over Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential contender, not attending the meeting.
Tinubu was not expected to attend the meeting with President Buhari, according to Tunde Rahman, spokeswoman for the APC presidential candidate.
The presence of H.E. Aswáj Tinubu was not intended. Rahman said in a statement to TheCable that President Buhari was the first to enthusiastically endorse the APC presidential ticket of H.E. Aswaj Tinubu and H.E. Senator Kashim Shettima.

“It was the collective decision of the party and Senator Shettima that Asíwájú doesn’t need to be there. That is the way it is. There is no point making an issue out of this.[/quotation]
