President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday hosted the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, 10 state governors and other politicians.
It was gathered that Gbajabiamila and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) met with the president in the morning at his Daura country home located along Kongolam Road, Daura.
Although sources revealed to ThePUNCH that the Speaker and his entourage were in Daura to pay Sallah homage to the President, it was learnt that political issues took centre stage at the closed door meeting .
Meanwhile, the governors’ meeting with the President began a few minutes before 4 p.m and lasted over one hour.
Although the governor’s aides said the governors were in Daura to celebrate Eid-El -Kabir with Buhari, sources said issues of national interest were also discussed at the closed-door meeting.
The governors in attendance included that of Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi; Aminu Masari (Katsina); Simon Lalong (Plateau); Abdullahi Sule (Nasarawa); Abubakar Bello (Niger); Abubakar Ganduje (Kano); Gboyega Oketola (Osun); Benedict Ayade (Cross Rivers); David Umahi (Ebonyi ) and Muhammed Yahaya (Gombe).
