Tinubu, others hold secret talks with Ekiti APC aspirants in Abuja


National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, a former governor of Ogun State, Aremo Segun Osoba and a select group of APC leaders from the South West are locked in a secret meeting at the Lagos State Government Lodge Annex Abuja.

The meeting which started about an hour ago, was part of efforts to find a common ground on the way forward after the botched Ekiti State APC governorship primaries.

Tuesday’s meeting has in attendance most of the contestants.

A source privy to the meeting informed our correspondent that the meeting which was scheduled for 2:00 pm was shifted to 4:00 pm because some of those expected for the meeting were held up at the Akure Airport.

This is even as the party has announced Friday as the new date for the conclusion of the botched exercise.

National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi told reporters that the party’s National Working Committee took the decision after considering the report of its panel sent to conduct the primaries.
