Following the Sallah break, President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima, President-elect Bola Tinubu, and senators-elect running on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are anticipated to conduct a meeting in Aso Rock.
The Senate President and Deputy President of the Senate will be declared, unless there is a special intervention, according to a senator-elect who spoke with Saturday Sun about the next meeting.
The gathering, according to the incoming congressman, aims to prevent a recurrence of Bukola Saraki’s victory in 2015.

He said that President Buhari had been informed of the news, but that an enlarged meeting will take place after Tinubu and Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of the APC, returned.
The lawmaker said, “There are many options that are being considered. They want to see if they can micro-zone the positions and directly instruct APC senators-elect to work for the people. Once that’s done, any plan to oppose it may not work.
“The only problem with that option is that the opposition has a commanding number of 50 senators-elect. If the party zeroes in on a particular candidate, the opposition might move against such a person. It will be a dangerous game to play.
“Meetings are ongoing and they’re considering all the options. But what I can assure you is that, a repeat of Saraki’s emergence may likely not happen with Tinubu as President of Nigeria.”
