Wike, el-Rufai in private night parley with Tinubu

As of about 8.00p.m. Wednesday, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu wasmeeting with former governors of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai and Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The two former governors are ministerial nominees. Whereas Wike has been cleared having been asked to take a bow and bow out, el-Rufai was not similarly cleared as the Senate took a break on Tuesday.

While Wike coasted home from the Senate, el-Rufai is yet to be cleared over an alleged security report.

The duo went to the Aso Villa presidential mansions separately last night, it could not immediately be determined if their mission(s) was related.
