The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Mai Mala Buni, has led the chairman of the party’s governorship election campaign for Edo State, Abdullahi Ganduje, to a private meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Although the agenda of the meeting was not made public, it held a day after the Independent National Electoral Commission declared the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, the winner of the governorship election held on Saturday.
Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the APC and other contestants to emerge winner of the contest.
Ganduje, who is the Governor of Kano State, was in Benin during the election but was said to have left the state on Sunday shortly before the result of the election was formally released.
Unlike the previous meetings they had with Buhari ahead of the election, Buni and Ganduje were seen using a different route apparently to avoid any encounter with State House correspondents.
As of the time of filing this report, the Presidency has yet to issue a statement on the meeting.
