July 11, (THEWILL) – Ten governors elected under the platform of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) held a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, Katsina State, the president’s country home, in what reports say may be connected with the choice of former Borno State Governor, Ibrahim Kashim Shettima, as the party’s Vice Presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections.

Some of the governors currently in a close door meeting with Buhari are, Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State, Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano, Hope Uzodima of Imo, Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, Ahmed El-Rufai of Kaduna and Simon Lanlong of Plateau.

The APC Presidential candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, had on Sunday, in Daura, named Shettima as his running mate for the polls, a decision that had tended to generate controversy as cross sections of Nigerians question the Muslim-Muslim ticket.
