TINUBU, KWANKWASO IN ALLIANCE TALK IN FRANCE
President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, appears to be solidifying his base with post-election alliances.
Tinubu, who left Nigeria last week Tuesday for Europe to meet foreign investors, reportedly met the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the February 25 election, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
According to an online platform, the meeting centred on involving Kwankwaso in the incoming administration.
The meeting also discussed issues around the election of the legislative leaders ahead of the June 13 inauguration of the 10th National Assembly.
The online newspaper added that the meeting between Tinubu and Kwankwaso started at 12.30 pm and ended at 4.45 pm.
Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the House of Reps and presumptive chief of staff to the president-elect, attended the meeting while Abdulmumin Jibrin, an NNPP rep-elect and former leader of a Tinubu campaign organisation, accompanied Kwankwaso.
Oluremi Tinubu, senator and wife of president-elect received Kwankwaso’s wife, Salamatu.
Kwankwaso, according the source agreed in principle to join Tinubu’s government subject to consultations with the stakeholders on both sides.
Tinubu is expected to brief Kashim Shettima, the vice-president elect, APC governors forum and other party leaders while Kwankwaso will do the same with his party leadership.
Tinubu had expressed concern over the strained relations between Abdullahi Ganduje, outgoing governor of Kano state, and Kwankwaso, and promised to broker peace between them.
Ganduje was deputy to Kwankwaso when he was governor of Kano from 2011 to 2015 but they soon parted ways.
Tinubu polled 8,797,726 votes to win the presidential election, beating PDP’s Atiku Abubakar by a margin of two million.
