Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, says he led nine governors of the All progressives Congress (APC) to President Muhammadu Buhari because of the controversies which trailed the party’s primaries for 2019 elections.
It was reported how APC governors stormed Aso Rock over the primaries.
The national working committee (NWC) of the ruling party had screened out preferred candidates of some governors and also cancelled elections in some states.
Okorocha said the the meeting with Buhari was to find solutions to the crisis trailing the primaries in states.
“We came to review the various crises characterising our primaries especially the APC with a view to finding solution,” he said.
“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 the right thing be done and let everyone contest the elections.”
Apart from Okorocha those who attended the meeting were Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), Sani Bello (Niger), Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo), Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Simon Lalong (Plateau), and Tanko Almakura (Nasarawa).
Akeredolu and Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, had earlier met with Buhari over the same issue on Wednesday.
