Buhari hosts APC Caucus meeting

Buhari hosts Tinubu in Aso Rock

The move to secure an endorsement for President Buhari's second term at the second highest decision-making body of the party was reportedly championed by some governors including Governors Rochas Okorocha, Simon Lalong and Atiku Bagudu of Imo, Plateau and Kebbi states respectively.

The meeting is a prelude to the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the party billed for the party secretariat today.

The National Caucus of the All Progressive Congress (APC) met last night at the new Banquet Hall of the State House in Abuja. I don't believe in the myth, I believe in confidence building, the trust that we have in the president.

The meeting also has in attendance the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, the Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun and the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun as well as the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the new Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha. I don't have problem with board appointments, but what I have problem with is it should not be just for party patronage. Whatever you call it, as far as we are concerned, we have one President and that is the ticket we will fly.

" I just met with the President".

Tiger Woods to return to competitive golf this year
Records most birdies and most bogeys of the week but finishes 15th of 17 - it was a rocky but encouraging return. His appearance in the tournament past year ended a 16-month hiatus from the sport because of back problems.

This, sources said, may not be unconnected with the behind-the-scene works preceding the preparation for the declaration of interest by Buhari for the 2019 presidential election.

"Our role is to make this party great and we are all trying to do that; but importantly, the governors have remained the pivot upon which this wheel of change has rotated so far".

The party members felt that considering the fact that aggrieved members had yet to be pacified, doing so would escalate tension in the party and adversely affect its chances.

At the end of the meeting, they declined to speak on the objective of the meeting.
