According to reports, vice President Yemi Osinbajo met behind closed doors with some All Progressives Congress (APC) governors from the northern part of the country at the presidential villa, Abuja.
The meeting had in attendance the Bauchi state governor, Mohammed Abubakar, and the Adamawa state governor, Jibrila Bindow. The meeting, which held at the vice president’s office, may not be unconnected with the inconclusive polls in the state.
The two governors who are seeking second tenure on the platform of the APC have been unable to secure a clear victory as the elections in their two states were declared inconclusive.
Saturday, March 23 have been fixed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), for the re-run elections in some states, including Adamawa and Bauchi.
Interestingly, President Muhammadu Buhari met with seven governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. The seven governors are Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna), Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Abdulaziz Yari ( Zamfara), Kashim Shettima (Borno), Abubakar Badaru, (Jigawa) and Fayemi Kayode (Ekiti).
Buhari left Daura for Abuja in the early hours of Tuesday, March 12 where he had gone to Daura, his country-home, where he went for the governorship and state assembly elections.
The president was in the company of his wife, Hajiya Aisha via the presidential chopper marked NAF-541 in company of his aides and close relations to Abuja. The APC are not leaving anything to chance as they want to win the gubernatorial rerun in the seven states.
