President Muhammadu Buhari and All Progressives Congress state governors on Tuesday night met behind closed-doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja .
Buhari had earlier on Tuesday met with the 36 state governors.
The Tuesday night meeting started few minutes before 11pm at the new Banquet Hall in the Villa.
The meeting was still in progress as at the 12.25pm when this report was filed.
The Street Journal reliably gathered that composition of the Buhari’s cabinet vis a vis governors’ controversial input tops the agenda. Buhari had rejected the nominees of the governors for slots in the new cabinet of the president. He had insisted that composition of his cabinet did not necessarily need the input of the APC governors, a sharp contrast from the usual practice in the past 16 years under the PDP government. He had argued that since he did not have an input in the composition of the governors’ cabinets in the various states, he saw no reason why he should be compelled to accept nominees of the governors to form his government.
Sources close to the presidency however, disclosed that strong indications emerged that the president might the compelled to bulge in order to give peace a chance in the troubled ruling party. It was gathered hat the tempestuous Saraki/Lawan and Gbajabiamila/Dogara issues was also being discus.
