Given that he recently met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the meeting between Tinubu and Jonathan would mark the APC presidential candidate and former president of Nigeria’s second meeting.
Ejes Gist Newspaper earlier reported that Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, allegedly declined some of the governor of Rivers state Nyesom Wike’s demands.
According to a source with direct knowledge of the situation, Wike has demanded that Tinubu compel potential PDP candidates for governor in the states of Benue, Oyo, Rivers, and Abia to withdraw their bids.
On the other hand, Tinubu stated that he would not want to mislead people and that he can only consider the case of Rivers state because other goals seem improbable and challenging to accomplish.
