Uneasy calm has pervaded the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the consensus option presented by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari before governors on the party’s platform ahead of the party’s presidential primary slated for next Monday.
Leadership gathered yesterday that some of the governors are strongly opposed to the idea of the president picking his successor singlehandedly, insisting that one of them, preferably a northern governor, should succeed Buhari.
This is even as Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday met with APC national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, and five governors of the party at the presidential villa.
However, reports say that the meeting may not be unconnected with the presidential primary of the party slated for next Monday.
President Buhari had met with the governors on Tuesday before travelling to Spain.
Buhari who has been in Spain on a state visit at the invitation of that country’s president, Pedro Sanchez, the first by the Nigerian leader, is billed to return this weekend.
