Six governors elected under People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are scheduled to visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London, which is being arranged by the office of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Munguno (retd.)
The governors visiting the president are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), and Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo).
“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. he 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,” a governor said in a report.
Meanwhile, according to another governor, the idea was mooted by some APC Governors.
“Yes, they mentioned it (visit); some APC governors mooted the idea but I don’t want to say anything on that for now,” he said.
The President accommodated some APC Governors and leaders last Sunday.
