The national executive council (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been postponed.
The postponement was announced after some governors of the ruling party met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja.
According to the Chairman, Progressives Governors Forum, Mr Abubakar Atiku-Bagudu, who spoke with reporters after the meeting, the governors urged the retired major general to support the postponement until they were able to resolve the issues in the party.
When asked whether Buhari approved the postponement, Atiku-Bagudu replied, “Yes, the President did. He is very happy!”
The governors in attendance were those of Ogun, Osun, Ondo, Kwara, Kano, Nasarawa, Edo, Kebbi, Jigawa, Gombe, Borno, Niger, Plateau, Lagos, Katsina, and Imo States.
The leaders of the party were divided over the meeting.
