President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday, November 4, met with three state governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the southwest geo-political zone at the Presidential Villa, Abuja The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the affected governors included Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo and Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti. NAN gathered that the meeting, held behind closed doors at the President’s office residence, was part of Buhari’s efforts to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party.
It would be recalled that the president had on Wednesday met behind closed door with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the APC and the party’s national chairman Adams Oshiomhole, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. The president’s meeting with the APC leader and Oshiomhole came less than 24 hours after Buhari hosted aggrieved APC aspirants to a dinner at the State House. The meetings were also part of the president’s reconciliatory efforts aimed at ensuring victory for the party in the 2019 general elections.
NAN reports that the outcome of Sunday’s meeting between the president and the three governors were still being awaited as of the time of filing this report. Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Senator Shehu Sani representing Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in the National Assembly has warned African regional examinations body WAEC to steer clear of Nigerian politics or be destroyed. Senator Sani, who defected from the All Progressives Congress recently, issued the warning to the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) in a tweet on Sunday, November 4. He noted in the tweet that dabbling into Nigerian politics was a very dangerous thing that could lead to the ‘sinking’ of the exams body.
