Tinubu returns after ‘working visit’ to Europe

President-elect Bola Tinubu has returned to the country from Europe where he went on a ‘working visit,’ according to his spokesman, Tunde Rahman.

Mr Rahman in a statement said his principal, during his stay, would meet with investors and finetune transition plans.

The declared winner of the February 25 presidential election was reported to have met with his opponent, Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) abroad with the aim of the latter joining his cabinet.

Mr Tinubu arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja Saturday evening after spending ten days in the foreign country.

Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima and Godswill Akpabio, a former minister and his preferred candidate for the Senate Presidency, were among the top politicians who gathered at the airport to receive him.

The former Lagos governor will take oath of office on May 29 when the final term of outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari expires.
