President Muhammadu Buhari is currently holding a closed-door meeting with a former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
DAILY NIGERIAN reliably gathered that the meeting was earlier billed to hold at the weekend, but Mr Kwankwaso objected on the premise that he had political meetings to attend in Kaduna at the weekend.
Mr Kwankwaso, a senator representing Kano Central, has fallen out of favour with the APC after the party failed to recognise his faction in Kano.
A top Presidency source on June 19 had quoted Mr Buhari as saying that he would not meet members of the new PDP.
“It is a party matter. I am not ready to sit down with any faction. If they have problems, they should go to the party.
“I will not interfere. Governors as party leaders in the states should deal with all issues. Where there is need, the party leadership can come in. I will not get involved,” Mr Buhari was quoted as telling the governors in a Daily Trust report.
The national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has recently engaged in peace meetings with aggrieved party members who are on the verge of defecting to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
