President Muhammadu Buhari had a closed-door meeting on Tuesday with governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa.

The meeting was led by the Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, amid continued consultations on who would be Tinubu's running mate.

Those in attendance were the Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, Governors Babagana Zulum, Borno, Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna, Mohammed Badaru Abubakar, Jigawa, Abdullahi Sule, Nasarawa, Simon Lalong, Plateau, Yahaya Bello, Kogi, and Hope Uzodinma of Imo State.

Per reports, Tinubu has narrowed down the search to Shettima who has been instrumental in the campaign.

Speculations also indicate that some elements of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) are planning to approach President Buhari to recommend Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice or the Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika, for the position of the vice president.

Daily Trust reports that three names have been forwarded to the Kebbi State Governor for further submission to Tinubu for consideration.

The list includes the names of Borno State governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum; the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina J. Mohammed and a liaison officer to the National Assembly during Olusegun Obasanjo’s first tenure, Kashim Ibrahim-Imam, for consideration.
