A delegation of governors elected under the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
They were believed to have requested the meeting to try to get the President to shift grounds on the cashless policy implementation, which had engendered some hardship among citizens.
Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, has recently assumed the vanguard of the ruling party governors pressing for the review of the cash swap policy, which he argues, is targeted against the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu’s election bid by those he said are elements within the Villa.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, told waiting for correspondents after the meeting that there would be no briefing, saying that a statement would be issued on the outcome.
Other APC governors sighted at the meeting are those of Ebonyi, Ogun, Imo, Zamfara, Kebbi, Yobe, Lagos, Kano, Kwara, and Niger.
