SEVEN Northern governors, Friday, met with President Muhammadu Buhari in closed-door after the Friday Juma’at service at the State House Mosque, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The governors who met President Buhari behind closed-door were Abubakar Bello of Niger, Ibrahim Gaidam, Yobe, Yahaya Bello, Kogi, Abdullahi Ganduje, Kano, Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna, Jibrilla Bindo, Adamawa and Simeon Lalong, Plateau State. Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, Governor Ganduje of Kano State claimed that the coming together of the seven governors was coincidence and not for any purpose.
Ganduje said, “We are seven in number here but we came separately not for any purpose but after the Friday prayers, we decided to say hello to Mr. President. Is just coincidence that we met in the Mosque and some joined us later and we decided to go to greet him.”
El-Rufai said, “We are politicians and those of us you see here want the President to contest the 2019 election, we have no apologies for that.
What do you make of this meeting? Tell us?
