Quattara commends Buhari over Nigeria's recession exit

The meeting which is now ongoing at the party secretariat follows the meeting of the national caucus of party which held on Monday night at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa.

A member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Oladimeji Fabiyi, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to consider the nation first as he considers appointing more ministers into his cabinet.

The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari and had in attendance Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara, and the newly-appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

Tinubu came in just as Oyegun and the NASS leadership were leaving the Presidential Villa.

" I just met with the President. And that got him excited and happy".

"You know me. I'm not known to shy away from talking my mind and rebelling if it is necessary, and taking charge of things that I believe are necessary".

"Our role is to make this party great and we are all trying to do that; but importantly, the governors have remained the pivot upon which this wheel of change has rotated so far". I don't believe in the myth, I believe in confidence building, the trust that we have in the President. "Conflicts resolution mechanisms is inbuilt on how you handle your party and the governance and the party are joined by the hips".

"But once you create leadership and is functioning, you don't have to babysit that leadership unless there is a loss of confidence and I don't have that".

The party members felt that considering the fact that aggrieved members had yet to be pacified, doing so would escalate tension in the party and adversely affect its chances. I am quite aware of the challenges before us.

President Buhari, had on October 26, met with the leaders of the National Assembly after the cancellation of the planned dinner for lawmakers in the Presidential Villa.
