The All Progressive Congress had said on June 18, 2019 that they had no influence on President Muhammadu Buhari nominees for the post of ministers. They stated that the choice of the nominees was the president’s prerogative.
The governors were led by the Chairman, APC Governors Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Mr Atiku Bagudu, to the meeting with the President, which lasted for about 28 minutes.
