Buhari To Meet APC Governors, NWC Members On Tuesday
Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari is expected to hold a meeting with the All Progressives Congress' National Executive Committee (NEC) members on Tuesday.
The meeting will also have in attendance Governors elected on the APC platform, members of party’s Board of Trustee and National Working Committee (NWC) members.

Tuesday's meeting would also deliberate on the viability or otherwise of a tenure extension for the current NWC.
Buhari had on Monday attended a meeting of the party's caucus, where he advised the leadership of the party to avoid what he called “illegal manoeuvres” in picking the party’s candidates ahead of the 2019 elections.
