Also on Sunday night, the President hosted members of the National Advisory Council to a dinner where he affirmed that the party is on its way to clinching its third victory since 2015.
Recall that the Northern governors had asked the leadership of the APC to zone its presidential ticket to the South. And although multiple reports said the president consented to their demand, the presidency on Sunday said Buhari never endorsed power shift to South.
