The All Progressives Congress (APC) governors under the aegis of the Progressives Governor’s Forum (PGF), convened to brainstorm on a winning policy ahead of the governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa state.
In a meeting which started at about 9:13pm at the Imo state Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja and ended at about 12:26am on Friday, July 31, Rochas Okorocha, the chairman of the PGF, said members discussed a wide range of issues, including the National Assembly crisis and the forth coming governorship elections in Bayelsa and Kogi states, The Punch reports.
Okorocha said: “We are also very happy about the development in the House of Representatives, as peace is gradually returning to the National Assembly.
“We are very happy that what has taken place in the Federal House, will soon take place in the Senate and we are resolved to make our party bigger and better than what it is now. So, we welcome interested parties to join us in building the Nigeria of our dreams.
“Peace will return. We hope that very soon, we will see total peace as we saw in the House.”
14 state governors, two deputy governors as well as the party’s national Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, were all in attendance.
Meanwhile, as the APC prepares for its primary election for the November election in Kogi state, no fewer than 22 members of the party (both new entrants and old members) have indicated their interest to fly the party’s flag for the election.
