Following crisis rocking the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with the leadership of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

PGF Chairman and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu, was accompanied by Governors Simon Lalong of Plateau and Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State.

The meeting would deliberate on security and the ongoing crisis in the All APC.

The party has been in turmoil in Edo State and now Ondo State.

In Edo, the face-off between the national chairman, Adams Oshiohmole and Governor Godwin Obaseki forced the latter to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In Ondo, Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi on Sunday defected from APC to the  PDP, amid disagreement with Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan had on June 21 met with President Buhari over the APC crisis.

Ahmad stated that the APC must deal with the challenges.

“This is the ruling party with the president; with the control of the National Assembly; with more governors than any other political party.

” So, I believe that we have to sort this out and that will make our work even better and easier when we have a stable party as the party is supposed to be part of the apparatus of running government”, Lawan said.
