Tinubu leads APC governors on thank you visit to Buhari in Daura
Nigeria’s President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is currently in Daura, Katsina State, where he is meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu flew in from Abuja on Wednesday night, a few hours after he was presented with a Certificate of Return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Our reporter gathered that the meeting with the president is probably hinged on the need to pay homage to the outgoing president for the support he received during the electioneering process.
Recall that President Buhari, while casting his vote on Saturday at polling unit 003 in Sarkin Yara Ward A, Daura Local Government Area, had openly displayed his ballot papers, indicating that he did not betray his party member and presidential flagbearer, Bola Tinubu.
Tinubu was accompanied on the visit to Daura to meet with the President by the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Abdullahi Adamu, Governors of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-rufai, Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, Ebonyi, Dave Umahi, Zamfara, Bello Muhammad, amongst others.
In the early hours of Wednesday, Tinubu was declared the President-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), having defeated Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party.
