President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting with former governors of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, and Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Naija News recalls that President Tinubu nominated Wike, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and El-Rufai as ministers.
However, while the 10th Senate led by Godswill Akpabio confirmed the former governor of Rivers State as minister, the upper chamber did not confirm El-Rufai because of an alleged security report.
This platform gathered that the former governors arrived at the State House separately.
While Wike came at about 1:40 p.m., el-Rufai entered the presidential wing of Aso Rock at about 2 p.m.
Sources at the Presidential Villa that spoke with Vanguard hinted that efforts are being made to ensure that the Senate confirms the former Kaduna Governor.
