Tinubu meets senators
National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, last night met with a group of senators from the camp that opposed the election of Bukola Saraki as Senate President.
One of the senators who attended the meeting confirmed to our correspondent on telephone last night that the meeting was held at Tinubu’s Asokoro residence in Abuja.
The senator, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that Tinubu’s meeting with members of the Senate Unity Forum that backed Senator Ahmed Lawan for Senate President, lasted several hours.
The senator, who is from the South-West geo-political zone, however, parried a question on what Tinubu discussed with them.
He simply said: “You know Senator Bola Tinubu is a great leader of our party. I expect you to understand that whatever he discussed with us must be in the interest of our party and the country at large”.
Asked whether the ministerial list was discussed at the meeting, the senator said: “We discussed many things about the polity. Full stop, please”.
Members of the Senate Unity Forum had reportedly started wooing senators loyal to Saraki with a view to changing the leadership of the Senate.
