Masari, Okorocha Keep Mum After Closed Door Meeting With President Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met behind closed doors with Governors Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and Aminu Masari of Katsina States at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the President met separately with the governors in his office and the agenda of their meetings were not made known to the public.

It would be recalled that Okorocha, who is the chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, had on October 10 met with Buhari alongside four other governors on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

The governors were Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State, Kashim Shettima of Borno State and Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.

NAN also reports that Masari, who last met with the President at the Presidential Villa on September 13, had pledged 2.5 million votes for Buhari in the forthcoming 2019 presidential election.

Buhari also met behind closed door with Senator Abu Ibrahim, representing Katsina South Senatorial District, at the Presidential Villa.
