President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting with former governors of Rivers and Kaduna states, Nyesom Wike and Mallam Nasir El-Rufai , at the presidential Villa.

The former governors were part of Tinubu’s ministerial list screened by the Senate. However, while Wike scaled the Senate screening hurdle, El-Rufai’s nomination is yet to be passed.

Sources at the Presidential Villa hinted that efforts are being made to ensure that the Senate confirms Mallam el-Rufai.
