President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday evening met separately with former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, and the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan at the Aso Rock Villa.
Details of the closed door meetings were not disclosed, and no official statement was released after.
Lawan who spoke after his meeting with the President said, “I want to make a promise to Nigerians on behalf of my party that APC at the state and national levels will always do things that would matter for the lives of the ordinary Nigerians and why we are failing is not because we want to fail. It’s because we are challenged and we are only eight years old.
“We had a political party that was in power for 16 years and most of the problems that APC met at the state and national levels are issues sown a long time ago since 1999 and some were there before 1999.
“We have done a lot. I am a chief participant in this administration and I know just how much has been invested in the infrastructure of this nation and how much we have invested in empowering the youth.”
The meeting comes barely two days after the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu paid a thank you visit to President Buhari at the Villa.
