This online news platform understands that the APC governors were led to the meeting by Atiku Bagudu, the Governor of Kebbi State, north-western Nigeria.
The meeting was also attended by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr Abba Kyari.

It was gathered that Oshiomhole arrived at the Presidential Villa about 11.30 am, looking excited as he responded to greetings from Department of State Services (DSS) operatives by the entrance to the Council Chambers.
Edo State, which happens to be Oshiomhole’s home state, has been engulfed in crisis between loyalist of the APC chairman and the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki.
