Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state, says President Muhammadu Buhari has endorsed February 2022 for the All Progressives Congress (APC) national convention.
Speaking with journalists on Monday after he and other APC governors held a meeting with Buhari at the presidential villa, Bagudu who is the chairman of Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), said February was suggested to the president, because four states have not held congresses.
NAN quoted the Bagudu as saying: “I also explained yesterday that the Progressive Governors Forum discussed the issue of national convention of the party and they mandated us to come and discuss with the president as the party’s leader to give the input of the governors so that the party and the president will consider,”
“Part of the inputs we got yesterday was that we still have four states which are in the process of completing their congresses like Anambra, understandably because of the recent gubernatorial election; Zamfara and two others, because of logistic challenges and then, Christmas is around the corner and early January, we will be very busy with Ekiti.
“So, the governors, based on all these, suggested that the party and the president should graciously consider February and the president is favourably disposed to the suggestion.”
