ABUJA – PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and some governors on Thursday met at the President’s office, State House Abuja.

The governors at the meeting were Katsina State governor, Aminu Masari, Zamfara State governor and Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum, Abdulaziz Yari, their Kebi State counterpart, Atiku Baguda and that of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun as well as the Ekiti State governor-elect, Kayode Fayemi.

Although information initially had it that President Buhari had closed before the arrival of the Senate President, it was gathered that the President was in his office and met with Saraki alongside the Vice President and the four governors.

The agenda of the meeting was not made public.

Recall that there was a rowdy session on Tuesday in the Senate over the supplementary budget submitted by the President where he had told the National Assembly to take out the allocations in their constituency projects to fund N242.4 billion INEC budget for the 2019 elections.

The meeting lasted about 30 minutes but the Senate President declined to talk to State House correspondents who had approached him to comment on the agenda of the meeting.

However, the Ekiti State Governor-elect, Dr. Kayode casually said that they came to celebrate with the President over his election victory.

The former Minister of Mines and Solid Mineral Development who displayed his Certificate of Return from the INEC also jokingly said that Ekiti State election had gone and that the All Progressives Congress will also take over Osun State.
