Ahead of the March 26th National Convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party’s governors have said they will back whoever President Muhammadu Buhari supports.
The governors came up with this resolution on Wednesday after a meeting with President Buhari at the State House in Abuja.
Led by the Chairman of the Interim Committee of the party and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, the governors said they have straightened out decisions ahead of the March 26 convention.
Chairman of Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, told State House correspondents that Buhari had last month indicated that he is in favour of the consensus mode for selecting candidates for the party’s national positions.
According to Bagudu, this is why the governors will support any process that leads to a consensus.
