The meeting was confirmed by an aide to President Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, who posted the information on his personal Twitter handle.
In its own version of the report, The Nation states that the meeting had in attendance Atiku Bagudu, the chairman of Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), governor of Kebbi state; Simon Lalong, the chairman of Northern Governors Forum (NGF) and Plateau state governor; and Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa state.
Though details of the meeting are yet to be known, it is learned that discussions would centre on the internal crisis rocking the ruling party.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the crisis striking APC took a bend turn as a top chieftain of the party insisted that Victor Giadom did not resign his position as the deputy national secretary.
Speaking against the position of the party's NWC, Salihu Mustapha who is the northeast vice-chairman, said Giadom was granted a waiver when he contested the deputy governor position of Rivers in 2019.
Mustapha's claim came in amid speck of dust raised by the national chairmanship of APC following the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole.
Similarly, Giadom the factional national chairman of the ruling party has described his suspension as a fluke and weak.
The squabbles in the APC leadership ran into a sharp curve on Sunday, June 21, as Giadom was suspended by the Rivers state chapter of the ruling party.
Giadom who imposed himself as the chairman of the party after Oshiomhole's suspension was upheld by an appeal court amid ranging crises in APC, was sanctioned over allegations of gross disobedience to the APC constitution.
