Aanya Igomu, Abuja

The Forum of Governors in Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, are to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari to set a date for the party’s National Convention. 
The Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu said this while briefing journalists on the resolutions of their meeting held in Abuja.
The APC National Convention which is long overdue is to elect a new crop of leaders that will manage the party’s affairs for the next four years. Governor Bagudu said the party will release a date for the Convention after the meeting with the president. 
He added that the meeting also discussed the conduct of the concluded ward, local and state Congresses.
“We passed a vote of confidence to the caretaker committee that has done a wonderful job, Chaired by Governor  Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state and two other governors who are members of the committee. We appreciated their conduct in the congresses that took place in both  Ward and local government and the state Congress.
We laud their efforts to ensure that anybody who has been aggrieved or otherwise feels dissatisfied is respected and invited. Such individual is invited and calm down and urged to support the party. Sometimes electoral processes are not without annoyance, but We are happy with the conduct of the caretaker committee. 
“Furthermore, we agreed as a forum, to seek an appointment to meet with the President and discuss with him the on-coming national convention of the party. 
We hope to secure that appointment as quickly as possible. Following our meeting with the President, we will disclose what we recommended,” he said.
Regarding a question on the forum’s position on Direct Primaries which was recently passed by the National Assembly, Governor Bagudu said the Governors will discuss all matters relating to the progress of APC at the meeting with the President.
