Barely 24 hours after their first meeting, President Buhari this afternoon met with five APC state governors and they have agreed to end the tenure of the National Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun and other members of the National Executive Council of the party.
Recall that last month, President Buhari said the tenure elongation for the party's NEC officials will not continue because it is against the party's constitution.
Speaking with journalists after their meeting with President Buhari, Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State said,
"Gentlemen of the press, you know yesterday, we left you in the dark after the meeting and today, we have seen so many captions that there is disagreement between the governors over the issue of party Chairman or about the party leadership.
No. We had a meeting with Mr. President yesterday (Tuesday), and we extended the meeting today and we followed up with the consultations with the president now.
We consulted and all the 24 governors of the APC are on the same page with Mr. President that we are going to respect our party constitution, we are going to respect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. So, therefore, we collectively agreed that we will have congresses at all levels - local, state and national" he said
