“JUST IN: President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chairman of great party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, ahead of the formal presidential campaign flag-off later in the week,” the tweet had said.
The presidential media aide, Ahmad, said he did not have details of the deliberations at the meeting.
But he said he could confirm it was all about putting final finishing touches to the kick-off of the party’s presidential campaign, which has been scheduled to hold in Jos, Plateau State, on Tuesday.
According to him, “All I know about the meeting is that it was for the preparation towards the kick-off of the campaigns taking place in Plateau tomorrow.”
