Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) say they are pleased with the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
At a virtual meeting with the president on Tuesday, the governors said the president has handled issues on security and the economy well.
They listed pulling the country out of recession in 2016 as well as the ongoing management of the COVID-19 pandemic as some of the achievements of the president.
“We are proud of your leadership and achievements,” Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, quoted Atiku Bagudu to have said on behalf of his counterparts.
Bagudu is the governor of Kebbi state and chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum.
Also at the meeting were Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF); and Ibrahim Gambari, chief of staff to the president.
In June, the national executive council (NEC) of the party dissolved the Adams Oshiomhole-led national working committee (NWC) following a series of leadership crisis.
A caretaker committee chaired by Mai Mala Buni, Yobe governor and former national secretary, was set up to man the affairs of the party.
The president said he is impressed with those in charge of the party.
“I am pleased with the chairman and the work of the committee. He is highly mobile in the efforts to coordinate and strengthen the party. I am happy with his personal efforts,” Shehu quoted Buhari to have said.
“I am happy that they know their responsibilities as governors and had identified the right priorities.”
