Tinubu, wife scheduled to return to Nigeria today, possibly by 2 p.m


There are significant indicators that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the President-elect, will return to the country on Monday (today).

Tinubu had left the nation on March 21 to spend time in Paris and London.

According to a statement issued by Tunde Rahman for the Office of the President-elect, Tinubu’s vacation was intended to allow him to recuperate and organize his transition ahead of his inauguration on May 29.

In a tweet on Sunday, James Faleke, Secretary of the APC Presidential Campaign Council and a member of the House of Representatives, stated that Tinubu and his wife, Senator Remi Tinubu, would arrive “by 2pm at the presidential wing of the International Airport.”

“My dear brothers and sisters of this unique family, I wish to inform and request of  us all that anyone in Abuja and Nasarawa is invited to join in receiving our people’s President-elect  and First Lady tomorrow by 2pm at the Presidential wing of the International Airport.

“Departure Time:2pm; departure venue: The Campaign Office; Accreditation time: 12pm. Buses will be provided. Only Accredited persons will be allowed at the airport for security reasons,” Faleke’s tweet read.

Another party chieftain and a high-ranking member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, who requested anonymity, revealed that Tinubu’s private plane will land at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja on Monday (today).

“The report is correct,” he remarked. Asiwaju will arrive tomorrow (Monday) in preparation for the inauguration on May 29. He will also meet with the party soon to discuss National Assembly leadership.”

Meanwhile, the ruling All Progressives Congress’s National Working Committee is ready to meet with the former governor of Lagos to discuss the leadership of the 10th National Assembly.

Bala Ibrahim, the APC’s Director of Publicity, also indicated that the NWC meeting could take place this week.

He couldn’t say whether or not the President-elect will be there.

“We expect the President-elect to arrive hopefully tomorrow (Monday),” he said. I’m not sure of the precise date, but I believe the NWC meeting will take place this week, once everyone has returned from their holiday break and their journey to Umrah.”

Earlier in the day, the APC announced the dissolution of its Presidential push Council, which was formed in October to push for Tinubu’s election victory.
