Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress are converging on Daura, Katsina State on Friday (today) for a crucial meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Daily Trust is reporting.
Buhari left Abuja on Thursday to commiserate with his family members over the loss of two relatives.
But Daily Trust said meeting could provide Buhari the opportunity to tell the governors whether or not he would contest the 2019 presidential election.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, confirmed on telephone to Daily Trust that Buhari would meet the governors in Daura today.
“Yes, that is very correct,” Shehu said.
He, however, declined comment on the agenda of the meeting.
Also, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said whatever meeting the President has with anyone in Daura would be a private one.
