Imo state governor and chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, Rochas Okorocha, asked the leadership of the party to do the right thing and allow everybody to participate in its ongoing nationwide primaries.
Speaking to state house correspondents after a closed door meeting between him and 7 other APC governors with president Buhari this afternoon, Governor Okorocha said the meeting centered on the controversial primaries their states had which was cancelled by the party leadership.
“We came to review the various crises characterizing our primaries, with a view to finding solution. So, we are looking for a way out in this regard. We are going to find solution; our party believes in justice, equity and fairness. We are requesting that let the right thing be done and let everyone contest the elections” he said
The other governors in the meeting include Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo), Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Sani Bello (Niger), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), and Tanko Al-Makura (Nasarawa).
Shortly after the meeting they had with president Buhari which lasted for 2 hours, the state governors and the Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari, drove out of the presidential viall. It is believed they were heading to the party secretariat to meet with the National chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomole, and other leaders.
