South West Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were involved in a closed door meeting with President Jonathan yesterday at Aso Rock, Abuja. The governors in attendance were: Babatunde Fashola (Lagos), Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti) and Rauf Aregbesola (Osun).
Some ministers were also in attendance at the meeting which lasted for over an hour. The ministers are: Minister of Communications and Technology, Omobola Johnson; Minister of State, FCT, Olajumoke Akinjide; Minister of State for Defense, Musiliu Obanikoro; and Minister of Police Affairs, Abduljelili Adesiyan.
At the end of the meeting, none of those in attendance revealed the agenda of the meeting to journalists.
Lagos state Governor, Babatunde Fashola said the President’s spokesman would issue a press release if the President wants the details of the meeting to be made public.
Ekiti state Governor, Kayode Fayemi claimed the issues discussed were matters of national importance.
There is a suspicion however that the President promised the governors that he will not interfere in elections upcoming in Osun and Ekiti.
