The president on Monday night presided over a meeting of the national caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The meeting was held at the new Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

At the meeting were Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, the APC national Chairman, John Oyegun and National Leader, Bola Tinubu.

Others at the meeting were governors of Plateau, Adamawa, Bauchi, Sokoto, Niger, Kogi, Jigawa, Benue, Ondo, Oyo, Ogun, Kebbi, Nasarawa as well as deputy governors of Kwara and Yobe states.

Cabinet ministers and presidential aides were also at the meeting.

It is not clear what was the agenda of the meeting, but it comes at a period that many Nigerians are waiting to hear the president's decision on whether he will be seeking a second term.

President Buhari has not made an official statement about his political ambition come 2019, but political analysts have predicted that he would run.

He had earlier in the day met privately with Tinubu.
