President-elect Bola Tinubu and the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the 2023 election Rabiu Kwankwaso had a meeting in Paris.
It was gathered that the meeting which took place in the French capital on Monday, was brokered by Kwankwaso’s ally Abdulmumin Jibrin who was formerly in Tinubu’s camp.
According to a reliable source, both men are still in Paris and expected to hold more talks.
When an authoritative source within the Tinubu camp was contacted about the meeting, he said, “It’s true. It was in France they met as reported. It also lends credence to the fact that the man (Tinubu) is alive and well.”
Monday’s meeting, it was gathered, also discussed developments in the legislative arm ahead of the lawmakers’ inauguration.

The ruling APC had recently unveiled its zoning formula for the leadership of the 10th National Assembly. But some members of the party are already kicking against it and threatening to work with the opposition to thwart the arrangement.
While both had a fruitful discussion, Kwankwaso and Tinubu are expected to have further consultations with their camps. At the meeting, the duo also reflected on their relationship in the National Assembly as far back as 1992.
As of then, the former Kano State governor was the deputy speaker of the House of Reps while Tinubu was a senator.
Others who attended the meeting include the Speaker of the House of Representative Femi Gbajabiamila; Bola Tinubu’s wife, Remi Tinubu, and Kwankwaso’s wife Salamatu.
