Barely twenty-four hours after the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) suffered an unprecedented defeat during the Edo governorship election held on Satuday, September 19, some leaders of the party have visited President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Rock.
The Nation reports that the president on Monday, September 21, received the chairman of the APC, national caretaker committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, and the governor of Kano state, Abdulahi Ganduje, at the State House, Abuja.
It was gathered that although Buhari met with both governors behind a closed-door and that the visitors did not speak to journalists, they were suspected to have met over the outcome of the Edo governorship election.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who was the candidate of the APC in the election, lost to the incumbent governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Godwin Obaseki.
Recalls that Ganduje, who was chairman of the APC Edo governorship campaign council, and his Imo state counterpart, Hope Uzodinma, who is also a member of the council, spent the weekend in Benin City.
