Buhari meets with APC governors amid convention saga


President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors at the presidential villa in Abuja.


The meeting is coming amid the rigmarole surrounding the national convention of the ruling party.


The party had on Monday fixed its convention for March 26 while March 12 was earmarked as the date it will elect its zonal officers across the six geo-political zones.


The governors were meant to have met with the president before now, but it was delayed due to his trip to Brussels, Belgium, to attend the EU-AU summit.


Issues surrounding the postponement of the party’s convention are expected to dominate the discourse at the meeting.


The party had earlier fixed February 26 for the convention but a postponement was announced after some confusion on the date.


John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, had said zonal congresses would be held prior to the party’s convention.


 “After deliberations and agreement with the national caretaker committee, we have agreed and approved that the activities of the national convention commence from the 24th of February and terminate on the 26th of March,” Akpanudoedehe had said.


“The convention activities will commence on February 24 and terminate at Eagle Square on 26th of March. In between the convention, we have agreed to have zonal congresses.”
