President Muhammadu Buhari has given the governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) 24 hours to produce consensus candidates ahead of Saturday’s national convention.
Buhari, while addressing the governors during a meeting at the State House on Wednesday, told them to draw up a list of the candidates for all positions ahead of the convention.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that Buhari was meeting the governors of the party to finalize arrangements ahead of the long awaited convention.
He said, “I have already given my own input and other recommendations on the way forward in both my February 25, 2022 meeting with the Chairman of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Committee and my March 13, 2022 letter to the chairman of the APC Governors Forum.
“Your Excellencies. With the convention only two days away I implore you to come together and sort out all the remaining party positions so that within the next 24 hours we can arrive at a unity list which we can take to the convention.
“Finally all those who have bought forms indicating interest and have been dropped should have their money refunded without delay.”
Buhari also urged the governors to put the interest of the party ahead of theirs.
