President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently holding a closed-door meeting with former governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Wike arrived at the State House at about 1:40 p.m., while El-Rufai entered the presidential wing of Aso Rock at about 2 p.m.
The two former governors are among the president’s ministerial nominees.
The meeting came days after the Senate confirmed Wike as a minister, but did not confirm El-Rufai due to an alleged security report.
Sources at the Presidential Villa say the meeting will focus on efforts to ensure that the Senate confirms El-Rufai as a minister.
