A former leader of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and ex-Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, met with the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, today.
Oshiomhole’s latest visit to Tinubu’s residence has fueled rumours about his ambition to contest for the office of the 10th Senate President.
In a video spotted online, Oshiomhole was dressed in a white traditional outfit and was accompanied by Romeo Omoike, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
With the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly in sight, Oshiomhole is expected to express his ambition and pitch his manifesto to Tinubu.
In the last few days, there had been claims that Tinubu is supporting the former minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio to emerge as the next Senate President.
