The vice president of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday night met with the National Chairman of the APC, Senator Abudullahi Adamu and five governors of the Progressive Governors Forum.

The meeting was held at Osinbajo’s residence.

Osinbajo’s meeting with Adamu and the governors is coming after the conclusion of the party’s screening exercise for Presidential aspirants by the John Oyegun-led committee.

The identities of the governors as at the time of filing this report was unknown.

Recall that the APC has slated to hold its Convention to select the party’s flagbearer between 6th to 8th June in Eagle Square Abuja.

President Buhari before he traveled on official visit to Madrid, Spain had met with the 22 governors of the APC, where he emphasized on the need for them to support him in the choice of the party’s candidate.

The mindset of the party and the President has been to have a consensus candidate in order to reduce acrimony that may arise in the process of electing the APC presidential candidate but a section of the party and its candidates have opposed the consensus option.
