Tinubu meets Wike, Akpabio, Umahi in Aso Villa


President Bola Tinubu on Monday met with Nyesom Wike, former governor of Rivers state, and Godswill Akpabio, a former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.

The meeting is also being attended by David Umahi, former governor of Ebonyi state,  at the state house.

Last week, Wike met the president in the company of James Ibori, a former governor of Delta, and Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo state.

The agenda of the meeting is not yet known.

However, the composition of the national assembly leadership has been the issue on the front burner since Tinubu was inaugurated as president last week.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) nominated Akpabio and Barau Jibrin, senator representing Kano north, as senate president and deputy respectively.

In the lower legislative chamber, the party nominated Tajudeen Abbas, a lawmaker from Kaduna, and Benjamin Kalu, lawmaker from Imo, as speaker and deputy.

The decision did not go down well with some APC lawmakers-elect who are nursing ambitions to become presiding officers in the 10th national assembly.
