Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, left Osun State for Abuja, where he met with speakers from his party.
Naija News 247 gathered that Tinubu left Osun State amidst the collation of the results from the ongoing governorship election in the state.
Tinubu promised the lawmakers active roles in his campaigns leading up to the general elections in 2023 during the meeting with the speakers.
Mudashiru Obasa of Lagos, Olakunke Oluomo of Ogun, Idris Garba of Jigawa, Kennedy Ibeh of Imo, Eteng Williams of Cross River, Funminiyi Afuye of Ekiti, and Oleyelogun Bamidele of Ondo were among the speakers at the meeting in Abuja.
Others are Abdulkarim Lawan of Borno, Abdullahi Bawa Wuse of Niger, Ahmed Lawan Mirwa of Yobe, Musa Maigari of Katsina, and Siddi Buba, deputy speaker of Gombe.
Tinubu commended the Speakers for the earlier roles they played ahead of his emergence as the presidential flag bearer of the party.
He also used the opportunity to explain why he chose Kashim Shettima, a former governor of Borno State, to be his running mate.
The APC Speakers had visited Tinubu to congratulate him on his victory at the party’s recent special convention where he was elected candidate. They also pledged to support him ahead of the general elections.
