Six Governors are scheduled to visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London.
Among them are those elected under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The visit is being arranged by the office of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Munguno (retd.).
Listed among the six governors are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), and Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo).
A Governor told Punch that “Our colleagues are going to London to see the President. But I’m not happy that someone like the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, or his Rivers State counterpart, Mr. Nyesom Wike, is not on the delegation.”
“Though there are PDP governors on the delegation, we know ourselves and also know those we know are truly part of the opposition and those close to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
“The governors had been directed to be at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, tomorrow (Tuesday). From there, they will fly to the United Kingdom,” he said.
Another Governor disclosed that the idea was mooted by some Governors.
“Yes, they mentioned it (visit); some APC governor s mooted the idea but I don’t want to say anything on that for now,” he stated.
The President hosted some APC governor s and leaders on Sunday.
