The details of the crucial meeting by the governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have emerged.

Naija News reports that the APC governors met in the early hours of Tuesday in Abuja to discuss the much-anticipated National Convention and the crisis rocking the ruling party.

Speaking with reporters after the meeting, Chairman of Progressives Governor Forum and Governor of Kebbi, Atiku Abubakar Bagudu, said the meeting was successful and some recommendations were made.

Bagudu disclosed that the governors would meet with President Muhammadu Buhari today to further deliberate on the issues of the National Convention and the internal crisis rocking the party.

The PGF chairman stated that the two issues were discussed at the crucial meeting, adding that the Chairman of the Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State briefed the forum on the day-to-day activities of the party.

He said: “We had briefings from the Chairman of the Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party, Governor Mai-Mala Buni of Yobe State.

“And we discussed the meeting we are going to have Mr President today to further discuss on the party (Convention).”

Bagudu stated that the forum will reveal its stand on the new timetable released by the CECPC for the zonal congresses and national convention.

The Kebbi governor, however, promised that the forum would ensure the emergence of a crop of new leaders that will earn the confidence of the party members.

He said: “Until we finish the meeting with Mr President we rather not comment on any timetable and any logistics.

All the APC Governors have met and as always have appreciated the need to work together with the other stakeholders, we have always been humbled that we are not the only stakeholders of the party – to work with other stakeholders and to ensure that we deliver transparently, honestly, the national executive that will earn the confidence of all party members.
