APC Crisis: Buhari Meets Amosun, Akerodolu - 'We Have Put Our Feet Down"
President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday met with three state governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the South West geo-political zone at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
They include; Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo and Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti.
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.
Amosun and Akeredolu, had been at loggerheads with the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, over the manner in which the primary elections were conducted.
It would be recalled that the President had on Wednesday met behind closed door with Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the APC and 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.
The outcome of Sunday’s meeting between the President and the three governors was not announced.
However, the governors after the meeting said they were at the Villa to assure Buhari of their continued support ahead of the 2019 presidential election.
Akeredolu said apart from assuring the President of their support, they also seized the opportunity of the meeting to “talk on some issues and put our feet on ground on the issues”.
Amosun and Fayemi also expressed confidence that Buhari would win the 2019 elections.
