The President reportedly initiated this approach to form a government that is united with the opposition to foster quick development.
It was also gathered that they had a conversation about the dilemma in the selection of the principal officers of the lower and upper chambers of the National Assembly.
Kwankwaso was said to have agreed to join Tinubu’s government subject to consultations with the stakeholders on both sides.
The meeting between the duo also treated the long heated feud between Kwankwaso and the former governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, as he promised to reach a truce between them.
Before becoming governor, Ganduje deputised Kwankwaso between 2011 to 2015 before they had a fallout.
According to Daily Trust, Kwankwaso is the first presidential candidate to visit the Aso Rock Villa, having held an earlier meeting with the President in Paris before his inauguration on May 29.
