President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday met behind closed-doors with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The duo that came together in one vehicle to the forecourt of the Presidential Villa spent over 45 minutes in the President’s office.
They declined to speak on the purpose of the meeting with State House correspondents when they came out from the President’s office.
While Dogara kept mute, Tambuwal parried most of the questions from the journalists.
On whether the meeting has to
do with the House of Representatives, Tambuwal said: “Not at all.”
Asked if it has to do with recession and sale of assets, he replied the journalists with: “I have already aired my views on the sales of assets.”
Asked further if the meeting has to do with the clash between the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, he responded with: “I don’t know about that.”.
Speaking on the visit to the Villa, he said: “We are here to meet Mr. President and greet him and to show our support.”
