The former governor of Lagos State announced that he had an important meeting with the president at 9.45 pm.
Tinubu in his closing address said, “I have a superior appointment. Late yesterday, the president called that I should be at his place by 9.45 pm this evening (Friday). What do I do? Cancel it and disobey my president? And it is a command, more or less. (He said) see me at 9.45 pm.
“I can’t say I would boycott this event or downgrade it. I have got to be here too, first of all, seek your understanding. That is why there is always a pair for races like this. I have a vice presidential candidate.”
This is Tinubu’s first meeting with President Buhari after the latter promise to support the APC presidential candidate during a campaign in Sokoto State on Thursday.
As of the time of filing this report, the detail of the meeting has not been revealed by either party.
