Former governors, now, senators on Thursday held a ‘strategic’ meeting.
The former governors are all members of the All Progressives Congress.
A source privy to the development called it “a strategic meeting” that has to do with party’s forthcoming national convention.
The ruling party had fixed February 26 for its convention.
The source rather gave a thumbnail information about what the meeting might be about.
“I believe the discussions centered around whom to support for the national chairmanship position among their colleague-contestants,” he told TheCornet.
Those who attended the meeting are Senators Aliyu Wammako, Adamu Aleiro, Ibikunle Amosun, Danjuma Goje, Rochas Okorocha, Ibrahim Shekarau.
TheCornet reports that former governors touted to have an interest in the party’s chairmanship are Senator Tanko Al-Mukura, (ex-governor of Nasarawa State); Senator George Akume (Benue State).
Another person, though not a former governor, said to be interested in position too is Senator Isa Musa.
The APC has reportedly zoned its national chairmanship post to north-central zone.
As gathered, the party is working to have a consensus candidate, but who that would be has inspired deft politicking between the rank of incumbent and the former governors and their other senate colleagues.
