President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday met the former minister of Transportation and presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Congress, Rotimi Amaechi in Aso Rock Villa.
The President also met with Senate President Ahmad Lawan on Sunday evening days after the presidential primary of the ruling party.
Recall that the National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu defeated Amaechi and Lawan in the just concluded primary.
The details of President Buhari’s meeting with Amaechi were not disclosed, but Lawan who spoke after his meeting with the President said the APC is still struggling with challenges it inherited in 1999.
Lawan said, “I want to make a promise to Nigerians on behalf of my party that APC at the state and national levels will always do things that would matter for the lives of the ordinary Nigerians and why we are failing is not because we want to fail. It’s because we are challenged and we are only eight years old.
“We had a political party that was in power for 16 years and most of the problems that APC met at the state and national levels are issues sown a long time ago since 1999 and some were there before 1999.
“We have done a lot. I am a chief participant in this administration and I know just how much has been invested in the infrastructure of this nation and how much we have invested in empowering the youth.”
