President Muhammadu Buhari is currently in a closed-door meeting with governors from the northern area who were elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

According to reports, while other concerned governors have already taken a stand, Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has yet to appear.

Sololoaded has learned that the ruling party began its presidential primary process on Monday, ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Although President Buhari has maintained his stand on the consensus accord, none of the 23 APC presidential hopefuls who were inspected last week have reached an agreement.

Hopefully, the meeting with the APC governors from the north would make it easier for the party to find a consensus candidate and avoid acrimony during the polls.

Governors allegedly present include Atiku Bagudu, chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum and governor of Kebbi State, Simeon Lalong, Abubakar Badaru (Jigawa), and Babagana Zulum, chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and governor of Plateau State (Borno).

Aminu Bello Masari (Katsina), Abdullahi Sule (Nasarawa), Bello Matawale (Zamfara), Mallam Nasir el-Rufai (Kaduna), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Yahaya Inuwa (Gombe), Abubakar Bello (Niger), and Mai Mala Buni, the governor of Yobe State, are among the others.
