Barring any last minute change, President Muhammadu Buhari will today, Friday, meet with governors of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in his country home of Daura, Katsina State.
Buhari is likely to inform the governors of his intention to seek reelection or not in 2019, a source told Daily Trust.
The report said the president and the governors were earlier scheduled to meet at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, but the meeting was rescheduled for Daura due to Buhari’s engagement.
According to the source, “very serious political developments,” would be discussed at the meeting.
Confirming the development to the news outlet, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said “Buhari would meet the governors in Daura today.”
Shehu, who, however, declined to comment on the agenda of the meeting said, “Yes, that is very correct.”
Also, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said whatever “meeting the president has with anyone in Daura would be a private one.”
President Buhari yesterday evening arrived Daura on a private visit after a working visit to Kaduna State.
Some governors of the APC, Ministers had expressed support to the president should he decide to seek re-election in 2019.
However, a former president Olusegun Obasanjo and former military president, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida had in separate statements, advised Buhari against seeking re-election.
The president had last week appointed a Bola Tinubu, national leader of the APC to reconcile aggrieved members of the party.
