BREAKING: Bello, El-Rufai, Fayemi Meet Buhari In London

1 min read

Acting Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Abubakar Sani Bello, Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai and his Ekiti State counterpart and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) Kayode Fayemi are in London to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari, Prime Business Africa reports.

They left Saturday night, March 12, 2022, in a Lagos  outbound commercial flight.

Impeccable sources familiar with events  within the Presidency and the ruling party said the ‘crucial’  visit was precipitated by ”the urgent need to brief Mr President on events since the new Chairman took over as well as bring him up to speed with the preparations for the   March 17 NEC Meeting and the March 26 National Convention. The team  is also in London to check  up on Mr President  as he takes his deserved rest.”

Already, the President had hinted on Saturday that the March 26 National Convention  must hold as planned and warned part members to desist from name calling and back-stabbing to avoid falling into the hands of the opposition.

Bello’s visit in the company of  PGF Chairman, Fayemi,  and Kaduna State Governor El-Rufai will put a final seal  on all of APC’s plans for the National  Convention, especially its preparatory NEC meeting believed to be a major determinant of what would happen at the  March 26 National Convention.

Prime Business Africa had reported that President Buhari, while in London, had met  with Attorney General and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami and a few others,

Recall that the Independent National Election Commission (INEC) had raised issues with  APC’s proposed  NEC meeting as well as the preparations for its Convention, following the sack of  former Chairman of its Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee Mai Mala Buni,  and his Secretary,  John James Akpodunodedehe  and Bello’s appointment  as Acting Chairman by Buhari and APC governors.

Leaders of the party told Prime Business Africa on Saturday night that all the initial issues had been  taken care of, as the Constitution of the party and the Electoral Act 2022  do not foresee a situation where a political party would have to inform  INEC before holding its NEC Meeting,
