The President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is to return back to the country today.
Feelers from inside his camp indicate that all hands are on deck to receive him today in Abuja after his long rest in London and Paris.
He is returning to take charge and meet with the National Working Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). This is coming amid the tussle for the zoning of the leadership of both chambers of the National Assembly. He is expected to take charge and list out the direction his administration would take.
Tinubu had travelled abroad on March 21. A statement by Tunde Rahman, his spokesman, said the trip was to enable Tinubu to rest and plan his transition programme ahead of his inauguration on May 29.
The Secretary of the APC Presidential Campaign Council and a member of the House of Representatives, James Faleke, in a tweet on Sunday, said Tinubu and his wife, Senator Remi Tinubu, would land “by 2pm at the presidential wing of the International Airport.”
He added, “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.”
Another member of the campaign council said, “The report (about the arrival) is correct. Asiwaju will be arriving tomorrow (Monday) preparation for the May 29 inauguration. He will also be meeting with the party soon to discuss the leadership of the National Assembly.”
The party had on Sunday, announced the dissolution of its Presidential Campaign Council, which was inaugurated in October to campaign for Tinubu’s victory.
The dissolution was contained in a statement jointly signed by the PCC Director General, Governor Simon Lalong, and the secretary of the council, James Faleke.
