In a significant move towards fostering unity and inclusivity, President Bola Tinubu is currently engaged in a crucial meeting with Alhaji Asari Dokubo, a former Niger Delta agitator, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Alhaji Asari Dokubo played a pivotal role as one of President Tinubu’s staunch supporters during the presidential campaigns, and has continued to express his unwavering support even after Tinubu’s resounding victory at the polls.
While the exact agenda of this closed-door meeting has not been disclosed to the public, speculations suggest that it may be related to the President’s ongoing consultations with influential opinion leaders from the Niger Delta region. President Tinubu has been actively engaging with key figures from the area in an effort to address regional concerns and foster cooperation.
Earlier in the week, President Tinubu held meetings with other prominent figures from the Niger Delta region, including Chief Timi Alaibe, former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), and Dr. Dakuku Peterside, former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA). These engagements demonstrate President Tinubu’s commitment to understanding the unique challenges faced by the Niger Delta and seeking collaborative solutions.
