Buhari presides over APC national caucus meeting

Buhari hosts Tinubu in Aso Rock

He, however, met behind closed doors at his official residence with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara with the Vice-President, Prof.

The two meetings came ahead of a third one scheduled to hold between Buhari and the national caucus of the party.

The caucus meeting was coming before the National Executive Council, NEC, meeting taking place today.

But speaking to State House correspondents after the dinner of the leadership of the National Assembly with the Presidency at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday night, Saraki said that the question of when Buhari will be presenting the budget to the national lawmakers "should be directed to the executive, we receive them whenever they are ready", he said.

The governors spoke before the commencement of the NEC meeting.

Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State told journalists that all the APC governors would work for a return ticket for Buhari. I don't believe in the myth, I believe in confidence building, the trust that we have in the President. "I don't want to predict any number of years", Mr. Ibrahim said. Whatever you call it, as far as we are concerned, we have one President and that is the ticket we will fly.


"We are the party of the people for the people and by the people and this is democratic environment".

President Buhari also said that while some ministers may go, he would expand his cabinet above the 36 members representing the 36 states of the federation.

"Each of us has our role to play and that is why we are playing it".

The acclaimed national leader of the All Progressive Congress party, ( APC), Ahmed Tinubu has declined comment on President Buhari's 2019 ambitions.

He said they discussed how to strengthen existing bilateral relations between Nigeria and cote d'I voire.

The Senate President and the Speaker also came after the meeting had started.
