Buhari Meets Governors, APC Presidential Aspirants, NWC Over Primaries



President Muhammadu Buhari will on Tuesday meet with presidential aspirants under the All Progressives Congress, Governors, National Assembly leaders and the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) members over the party’s primary elections.

Sources revealed that the meeting is meant to address how the party will hold peaceful primary elections that will not cause division between members of the ruling party.

The party, through a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, on Monday postponed the screening of presidential aspirants for the second time though the APC’s National Organising Secretary, Suliaman Arugungu, on Sunday said the screening will hold on Monday.

The NWC will present the list of members of the Presidential Screening Committee to President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.

The Organising Directorate of the party had compiled the list of members of the Presidential Screening Committee (PSC) and committees to handle the three primaries slated for Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

The NWC approved the committees on Monday at a meeting held in Abuja and agreed that the list is presented to President Buhari before it is made public.

Morka disclosed that state delegates will elect governorship candidates on Thursday, while House of Assembly candidates will be elected by local government delegates on the same day.

The statement said the presidential primary will be held as scheduled on Sunday.

APC Governors who met last night in Abuja will meet with President Buhari on Tuesday to discuss their position on the presidential primary.

The leadership of the party had on Monday briefed the leadership of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) after inaugurating the Ekiti State Governorship Campaign Council at the party secretariat.
