THE State Governors of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has stated why they visited President Muhammadu Buhari in his country home, Daura in Katsina State.
The governors dismissed media reports that their mission to Daura was aimed at convincing the President to seek re-election in the forthcoming presidential election in 2019.
Denying the report, its chairman and governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha on Friday (16/02/2018) stated that their mission was merely to condole with Mr. Buhari who lost two members of his extended family.
Okorocha also said they used the opportunity to commend the president for appointing the National leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, as APC chief mediator to reconcile aggrieved members of the APC.
“We are yet to discuss that. That would be in next the meeting where we will discuss whether we want to support him to run or not.
“But for now we came on the issue of the death of his two relatives and to commend him for action taken on Tinubu as a conciliator,’’ he said.
