El-Rufai, Other APC Governors, Leave Aso Rock In Shame, After Emergency Meeting With Buhari

Five All Progressives Congress, APC, Governors, led by Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, on Tuesday, held a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

The meeting, which was at the instance of El-Rufai, was aimed at pressuring the President to help save the Governors of Adamawa, Kano, Bauchi, and Plateau State, from a humiliating ouster, in the March 9, Governorship and House of Assembly elections.

Joining El-Rufai at the meeting were, Governors Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), Abubakar Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), and Badaru Abubakar (Jigawa).

The source said that El-Rufai’s team tried to convince the President that: “If the Governors of Adamawa, Plateau, Kano, and Bauchi States, are sacked in this manner, it will be a slap on the APC as a whole, therefore Mr. President must find wade into the matter to save the situations.”

However, the source further revealed that: “Given the President’s stance on corrupt practices, there is no hope in view for the mission.”

Recall, that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had declared the Governorship elections inconclusive in seven States, with no clear-cut guarantee yet that the ruling party will eventually emerge victorious.
