Ibikunle Amosun And Other APC Governors Visit Buhari In Daura




The Governors under the platform  of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have visited President Muhammadu Buhari at his hometown in Daura, Katsina State .

Naija news learnt that the visit comes barely 24 hours after Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, and his Plateau State counterpart, Simon Lalong, among other dignitaries paid homage to the President.

President Buhari told the delegation that his administration is committed to fulfilling its campaign promises made in 2015.

According to him, the opposition party cannot criticise the Federal Government’s priorities and efforts made so far to address them.He also  promised to continue to do what he can as a leader.

Naija news also recalls that Governor Amosun  while speaking to newsmen after the meeting, said he was in Daura to greet the President in the spirit of the Sallah celebration.

He said: “It is just part of what we should do during celebration like this – to come and just say `hello’ to our leader. “People are waiting for me back home, they have been with me since day before yesterday, throughout yesterday, early this morning and I had to sneak out to come and just say `hello’ to Mr President.’’

The governor, who described Ogun state as “almost a one party state,’’ reassured that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would record impressive electoral results in 2019 general elections, in spite of the reported cases of defections by politicians in the state.

Governor Lalong, who also spoke on his visit to Daura, said he used the opportunity to share the Sallah festivities with President Buhari and the Daura Emirate Council.

“This is my first time of spending Sallah (holiday) in Daura and so I used the opportunity to do Sallah with Mr President in Daura and also to enjoy some good meats.“I also used the opportunity to do Sallah with the Emir of Daura because the Emir is like a father to me,’’ he said.
