Buhari, APC govs meet in Aso Rock, keep mum

Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.


The meeting it was gathered was not unconnected with the crisis in the party over the protest against the current national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

The meeting was attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.


Although no official reason was given for the meeting, there have been speculations that some governors elected on the APC platform are no longer comfortable with the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, and are seeking to remove him.

The meeting in Aso Rock started at about 3p.m. and lasted over two hours.

The governors who attended the meeting were: Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Babagana Zulum (Borno), Inuwa Yahaya (Gombe), Badaru Abubakar (Jigawa), Abubakar Sani Bello (Niger), Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Abdullahi Sule (Nasarawa), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Godwin Obaseki (Edo) Nasiru El-Rufai (Kaduna), Gbenga Oyetola (Osun), and Dapo Abiodun (Ogun).

They, however, declined to speak to newsmen at the end of the meeting as one by one, they filed out of the Council Chambers accompanied by the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari.
