Buhari Rules Out Meeting with Members of nPDP

President Muhammadu Buhari

According to a top government official, President Buhari has stated that he will never sit down to discuss with aggrieved members of the defunct new Peoples Democratic Party that joined forces to form the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The source disclosed that the President, during a meeting he had with state governors elected on the platform of the APC recently conveyed his position on the matter.
President Buhari insisted that state governors and the national leaders of the party should be able to resolve such issues.
According to him, the issue is a party matter and he is not ready to sit with any faction.
“It is a party matter. I am not going to sit down with any faction. If they have problems, they should go to the party. I will not interfere.
“As party leaders in the states, Governors should deal with all issues. Where a need arises, the party leadership can come in. I will not get involved.” Buhari was quoted to have told the APC governors.
However, he was said to have agreed that the contact started by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo should continue.
The source also added that currently, opinions are divided on the issue among the governors that attended the meeting.
“Some hard-line governors asked the President to ignore the nPDP members while the majority felt that talks between them and the VP should continue,” the source added.
When contacted, an aide to Kwankwaso, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said his principal was out of the country and was not aware of the position taken by the President on the crisis.
Earlier, the President had mandated the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, to reconcile all aggrieved members while Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had met with the leadership of the nPDP members to resolve the crisis.

Both efforts have been futile with the nPDP leadership insisting on meeting with the President Buhari.

  1. That's how's a leader with strong will acts. There must be a limit to how far these lawmakers can have their way and it's good President Buhari won't bend to their will...

  2. They need to stop distracting Buhari. There are better issues to talk about

  3. A good leader like Buhari does things with determination.
