Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have agreed to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari, to discuss the way forward for the party’s upcoming national convention.

The governors under the aegis of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) reached the agreement at the end of their meeting on Sunday night in Abuja.

Gov. Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi and Chairman of the PGF disclosed this while briefing newsmen at the end of the closed-door meeting.

 “We agreed as a forum to seek an appointment to meet with President Buhari and discuss the on-coming national convention of the party.

“Mind you, we are just one organ of the party, and since we are making suggestions to both the party and our leaders, I think it is not fair to preempt or disclose it before the meeting holds.“We are seeking the appointment as soon as possible, maybe in the next few days,’’ the PGF chairman said.

 Mr. Bagudu explained that the forum would keep the public informed on its decision on the zoning of elective offices after its meeting with the President.

 He said the forum passed a vote of confidence on the party’s Gov. Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Committee and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee.

According to him, APC has brought to fold three outstanding governors, the Deputy Governor of Anambra, members of the National Assembly, and distinguished Nigerians from all walks of life.

On the outcome of the Nov. 6 Anambra governorship election, Bagudu said Nigeria had won and President Buhari had made a statement about that.
