Tinubu, Kwankwaso Reportedly Hold Peace Talk In France


President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has met with Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, the 2023 presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), in France.

The duo met in Paris on Monday and reportedly discussed issues around the election of the legislative leaders ahead of the June 13 inauguration of the 10th national assembly.


Tinubu jetted out of Nigeria on Wednesday, May 10 to Europe.

The president-elect reportedly told Kwankwaso to reach out to his political associates on the need to work together.

The incoming president and his guest were said to have agreed to hold subsequent meetings.


While Kwankwaso’s wife and Abdulmimin Jibrin, an NNPP lawmaker-elect, accompanied him to the meeting, Tinubu’s wife and Femi Gbajabiamila, outgoing Speaker of the House of Representatives, were part of the meeting.

“The President-elect and Senator Kwankwaso met for over 4 hours behind close door in Paris on Monday. The meeting which started at about 12.30pm ended at about 4.45pm. The meeting was attended by Speaker of the House of Representatives Hon Femi Gbajabiamila.


Kwankwaso was accompanied to the meeting by member elect from Kano, Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin,” the report reads.


“Sen Oluremi Tinubu was also there to receive Kwankwaso’s wife Hajiya Salamatu, who came with her husband. Discussions were centered around their long term friendship since their days in the National Assembly in 1992, national unity and development, priorities for the new government, national assembly contests and the plan by the President-elect for a government of national unity which Kwankwaso has in principle accepted to join.”

The source said Tinubu also hinted at reconciling Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano and Senator Kwankwaso.

Ganduje had succeeded Kwankwso in 2015, but the duo fell apart shortly after.
