The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has been captured meeting with former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar at the Murtal Muhammadu International Airport in Lagos.
In a viral video on Twitter on Friday, the former Lagos governor was seen welcoming the chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) back to the country.
Tinubu welcomed Atiku back to Nigeria after spending almost a year in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), following his defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2019 Presidential election in Nigeria.
The meeting between Tinubu and Atiku is coming at a time some Nigerian politicians have started making moves ahead of the 2023 Presidential election by defecting.
Though Tinubu is yet to declare his intentions for the 2023 general elections, his posters all over the state and campaign trains suggest that the APC leader will run for the number one political office in Nigeria.
Like Tinubu, Atiku who was the 2019 Presidential candidate of the PDP, is also expected to seek another chance to become Nigeria’s President when the 2023 Presidential election takes centre stage.
