The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu met behind the closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. He used the opportunity to talk about zoning and succession plan for 2023.
Speaking to State House correspondents after meeting the President, Asiwaju Tinubu said:
“The zoning of positions now was being completely restless and not focused on the agenda of nation-building and development of our country
“Buhari has the courage and the character to quit in 2023 as he has promised despite the temptation, adding that he believes in the President as he is a man of integrity.
The APC leader said he was at the Villa to visit President Buhari as a new decade has started and to wish him well in the office and make some points on the stability, security and a number of issues around the country
“His New Year message resonated very well; he showed concern about the security and the understanding that the economy is still a challenge, but it’s a work in progress, you’ll have to continue to work on it and make it better for the common man. That’s the meat of the message.
“Any reasonable politician, who had worked with President Muhammadu Buhari will know that he will not (tamper with the Constitution). Detractors are always suspicious and will make accusations, but I was in the trench, in the struggle for democracy.
