The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday met with the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, the National chairman of the party, Abdullahi Adamu, and the state governors regarding the naira crisis occasioned by the naira redesign policy.
Some of the governors that attended the meeting convened by the chairman, Adamu, were Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai his counterparts from Nasarawa, Abdullahi Sule, Bello Matawalle (Zamfara), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Mai Mala Buni (Yobe) and others.
Also present at the meeting was the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his Kebbi counterpart, Atiku Bagudu, Jigawa governor, Abubakar Badaru, the Edo state former governor, Adams Oshiomhole, and others.
The meeting was summoned by Adamu to discuss issues related to the campaign, naira crisis, and next Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections in the country.
In his welcome speech during the opening session, Adamu said, “I am happy with the response so far. And it is my understanding that more of the governors are on their way coming. You will recall the recent development that has necessitated the need for this invitation.
“We do not want to seat in judgement of anybody or bodies with regards to what is going on today in the country as it affects our great party.
“I thought the best to do is to get all those who are holding forth in the critical positions in the party to get together and have some interactions so that we can have a better interpretation and appreciation of the situation that we are in. That is the essence of this invitation.”
The crisis rocking the party started after the governors appealed to President Buhari to postpone the deadline for Naira swap and allow both old and new currency co-circulate, a recommendation that was turned down.
