Lead­er­ship Group pub­lisher, Nda-Isa­iah vis­its Buhari

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

A chief­tain of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), Mr Sam NdaI­sa­iah, yesterday vis­ited Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari at the Aso Rock Pres­i­den­tial Villa in Abuja.

Nda-Isa­iah, the pub­lisher of Lead­er­ship News­pa­pers, was one of Buhari’s ri­vals in the APC pres­i­den­tial pri­maries held in La­gos on De­cem­ber 11, 2014.

The for­mer APC pres­i­den­tial as­pi­rant ar­rived the pres­i­dent’s of­fice yesterday at ex­actly 11.40am and left the Pres­i­den­tial Villa at 12.43pm.

This was the first time Nda-Isa­iah would be sighted vis­it­ing the Aso Rock Villa alone since Pres­i­dent Buhari moved there in June. Be­fore now, he had sev­er­ally vis­ited the seat of power, along­side other APC chief­tains.

The Niger State­born Nda-Isa­iah, who scored 10 votes in the APC pres­i­den­tial pri­maries, had been spec­u­lated to be among those likely to make Buhari’s min­is­te­rial list.

Pres­i­dent Buhari had on Wed­nes­day sent the first set of names of his min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees to the Se­nate for screen­ing and ap­proval.

Although the Se­nate has not of­fi­cially dis­closed the names of those on the list, NdaI­sa­iah’s name was not among those re­ported so far in the media.

The pres­i­dent is ex­pected to send the sec­ond batch of his min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees to the Se­nate any time soon.

Nda-Isa­iah while leav­ing the State House yesterday merely ac­knowl­edged greet­ings from jour­nal­ists.
