Oyegun/Tinubu's crisis: APC governors have confidence in Oyegun - Gov. Bello


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed doors with the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He was still in the President's office at the time of filing this report.

Tinubu had told Oyegun in a letter dated February, 21, 2018: "Disappointment greeted me when I discovered that you had swiftly acted in contravention of the spirit of our discussions". Although details of the closed-door meeting between Buhari and Odigie-Oyegun are yet to be availed members of the public, what is clear from the events of the last few days is that all is not well with the APC, unfortunately at the highest level.

Specifically, he accused the national chairman of not cooperating with him, saying some of his unilateral actions were capable of worsening the situation in some of the crisis-ridden states.

In a statement at the weekend, LIM, a socio-cultural group with branches in 33 states of the federation, said the reconciliation efforts were the only way to ensure the APC wins the presidential and National Assembly elections.

Bello, in an interview with State House correspondents on Thursday evening after the meeting the governors had with the President at the villa, noted that some errant party members must be disciplined, despite the reconciliation efforts. He however pledged to "fully support" the efforts of Tinubu.

Paul Pogba thinks Mourinho has made him a scapegoat
If Chelsea stroll into Old Trafford and win to throw United's top four hopes into doubt, Mourinho will likely come out swinging. They don't have shin pads, strapping, they don't have this or that.

Meanwhile, the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has said that state governors elected on the platform of the ruling APC and majority of the party members have confidence in Odigie-Oyegun.

He, however, contended that one solution can not work for the different states affected adding that some erring members in some states need to be disciplined.

We also believe in the President by appointing Bola Tinubu, our leader to reconcile some aggrieved members of our party.

The party however urged the former Lagos State Governor to "remain committed to his onerous task of reuniting all the forces in the party and ignore those they described as saboteurs".

Former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida have called on President Buhari not to seek for reelection.
