There are suggestions that the meeting which marks the first official interaction between President Tinubu and the APC governors since his inauguration earlier this week, may have as part of its agenda, the selection of leaders for the National Assembly, ministerial appointments, as well as the fuel issue currently rocking the nation.
President Tinubu in his inaugural speech, made it clear that he would listen to the people and involve all stakeholders in decisions that affect the nation; there are suggestions that his cabinet will be set within the first 60 days in office, and Nigerians eagerly await to see those who will be chosen to help pilot the country’s affairs.
