Buhari Meets Tinubu over Ambode

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday met the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting, a State House source said, was held at the residence of the President where both men discussed the ongoing primaries of the APC, particularly, the case of the embattled Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode.

The meeting held behind closed door had in attendance the first interim chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande.

It comes 24 hours after Tinubu publicly stated his opposition to the return of Ambode accusing him of abandoning the blueprint of the state.

Tinubu had consequently endorsed Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the governorship ticket of the APC for Lagos State ahead of the party primary.

Ambode, had on Sunday attacked Sanwo-Olu and vowed to fight for the APC ticket with a view to retaining his seat as the fallout between him and his mentor continues.

It remains unclear the stand of President Buhari on the matter, after Ambode met him last month to intervene in the impasse.
