BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at Presidential Villa, Abuja.
In attendance are the former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Dogara, immediate past Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwakwaso, ex-governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi, some former and serving Governors of the party.
The meeting might not be unconnected with the move to douse the tension within the rank and file of the party, which was recently prompted over the choice of the BoT Chairman, as well as to decide on wether or not, the APC National Chairman; Chief John Odigie-Oyegun should maintain his present opposition.
On the choice of BoT Chairman, while Tinubu is rooting for the former interim National Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar is also eyeing the position.
Similarly, ex–Governors of the APC have thrown their weight behind Odigie –Oyegun, but the serving Governors are kicking against his choice.
