Buhari presides over APC stakeholders meeting at the State House

The leader of the party, Bola Tinubu arrived at the meeting with some governors from South West and the immediate past National Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande shortly after the President and Vice President were seated.

While corroborating Dogara, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said a member of the party brought up the issue of automatic ticket for the President which was not discussed at the meeting.

THE All Progressives Congress, APC, caucus meeting started 8:30pm at the New Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday with President Muhammadu Buhari and the Vice President in attendance.

"Did I tell you that?"

While responding to a similar question, he said, "For anybody to preempt the consensus opinion of the people is to say the least not fair to the vision of our party".

"Do we have any other person that will challenge the President again?"

"Our role is to make this party great and we are all trying to do that; but importantly, the governors have remained the pivot upon which this wheel of change has rotated so far".




He said the APC government was on course and would remain focused on those necessary things about development, welfare and progress of Nigerians.

Before the caucus meeting, President Buhari had met sesperately with Saraki, Dogara, Oyegun and the Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum, NGF, and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari.

The Federal Executive Council (FEC), had however after its weekly meeting last Thursday, during which time it approved the 2018 budget proposal, said that the council will soon be meeting with the National Assembly to decide when it will be submitted to the two chambers for consideration.

President Buhari also said that while some ministers may go, he would expand his cabinet above the 36 members representing the 36 states of the federation.
