Buhari Meets Tambuwal At Aso Rock 

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday met with the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting, which agenda was not known at press time, came just three days after First Lady, Aisha Buhari hosted presidential aspirants across political parties, to an Iftar dinner in Aso Rock. Tambuwal was not at the first lady’s dinner

Tambuwal, who is the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum, is one of the key contenders for the leading opposition party’s presidential ticket for next year’s election.

His visit to the President came days after the PDP’s consensus arrangements among four northern presidential aspirants broke down.

Tambuwal, Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi, former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, and former Managing-Director of FsB International Bank, Mohammed Hayatu-Deen were the presidential aspirants involved in the failed consensus deal.
