APC chairman, state governors meet on state of the nation

A parley between Abdullahi Adamu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, some national officers of the party and some state governors of the party is underway in Abuja.

This meeting comes as some of the governors began offensives against President Muhammadu Buhari over his insistence of phasing out old N500 and N1000 banknotes in flagrant disregard for a ruling of the Supreme Court.

Before the meeting went into a closed-door, Mr Adamu said it was to discuss recent developments in the country without blaming anyone.

He said the recent developments in the country necessitated the meeting.

“We do not want to sit in judgement of anybody in regard to where we are today in the country as it affects our great party.

“I thought the best thing to do is to get all those who are holding forth in their respective positions and who were elected on the platform of our party to get together and have some interaction so that we can have a better understanding of what situation we are in,” the APC national chairman said.

As of the time of this report, governors of Kaduna, Kogi, Jigawa, Yobe, Zamfara, Plateau, Ekiti, Niger, Kebbi, Gombe, and Nasarawa, as well as deputy governors of Imo and Katsina were present at the meeting.
