BREAKING: Buhari Meets Tinubu, Akande, Other APC Chieftains After Obasanjo’s Criticism
President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The APC delegation is led by the former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu and Osun State governor, Bisi Akande.
The president's Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, revealed on his official Twitter account (@BashirAhmaad) that the meeting is taking place at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He posted, "President Muhammadu Buhari in a closed-door meeting with APC chieftains, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande at the Presidential Villa, Abuja."
The meeting is believed to be in continuation of Buhari's wider consultation before he declares his intention to seek re-election in 2019.
Buhari had in the last one week held series of meetings with several party leaders to discuss party affairs.
Last Thursday, Buhari held a dinner with select party leaders at the Villa in Abuja.
On Monday, Buhari also meet with some leaders of the party from the South-East.
Tuesday's meeting with Tinubu and others comes just hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo launched a scathing attack on President Buhari's performance since he was sworn in.
Obasanjo on Tuesday told President Muhammadu Buhari to jettison his quest for re-election in the 2019 poll.
Obasanjo in a statement titled: ‘THE WAY OUT: A CLARION CALL FOR COALITION FOR NIGERIA MOVEMENT, said the President has performed below expectations and “needs a dignified and honourable dismount” from leading the country.
The former President said the All Progressives Congress federal government has failed the masses who voted for change.
