The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Kalu met with the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu on Saturday afternoon in his Abuja residence.
Both leaders met to discuss the problems, unity, and future of Nigeria. Revealing their discussion on the meeting, Kalu stated:
“My brother, long time friend and fellow Political associate, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu early this afternoon paid us a cordial visit at my Abuja residence. We spent more than four hours discussing the security, unity and progress of the country. We also used the opportunity to reflect on other issues of national importance. God bless Nigeria,” Kalu wrote on his verified Facebook page.
Though Tinubu is yet to declare his intention to run for presidency in 2023, there have been reports and veiled indications that he might be interested in the exalted seat.
However, former governor of Lagos state, Babtunde Fashola hinted that Tinubu will give a speech in 2022 to clarify his intention of running for the presidency
INTEL REGION reported that SouthWest Agenda 2023, a political movement mobilising support for Tinubu to contest the 2023 presidential election, was inaugurated in Lagos in October by State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and other party chieftains.
Tinubu, who celebrated his 69th birthday in March 2021, commands an arguably large following of political loyalists. He has been rumoured to nurse a presidential ambition in 2023, even as political debates get intense for a Southern President after the eight-year administration of the incumbent, Muhammadu Buhari who is from Katsina State, North-West Nigeria.
