Some Governors elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress yesterday met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed doors.
The meeting, whose agenda was unknown, also had in attendance Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the Ekiti state governor, Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari; Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari; Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu; and Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun were present at the meeting that held at the President’s office.
After the 30 minutes meeting, Dr. Saraki declined granting interview to newsmen and President Buhari is yet to issue press statement about it.
However, Dr. Fayemi said that the governors were in the meeting to rejoice with the President on the victory of the party in Ekiti, July 14, governorship election.
But an anonymous source revealed that the President Buhari in the cause of the meeting, expressed readiness to dialog with aggrieved APC meets.
“On Wednesday night, close to midnight, some APC governors met with Saraki at his Abuja home. The governors included Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State. Meanwhile, (the National Chairman of the APC, Adams) Oshiomhole was at his home on Monday.
‘The governors who met with him on Wednesday night listened to his grievances and were shocked with the revelations, forcing them to go to the President to brief him on their findings. They urged him that very urgently and importantly, he needed to meet Saraki. That was why today’s (Thursday) meeting was called.”
The source also revealed that APC governors have been meeting with Saraki since the week began.
