The presidency has defended the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to meet with the leadership of the two main political parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying the party asked to meet the president.
The Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known while responding to complaints by other political parties who felt left out.
Shehu said the Presidency did not have any record that other political parties sought an audience with the President and their request rejected.
The leadership of the APC and PDP asked for an audience with the President separately and the President in its wisdom decided to meet them together.
You may want to ask the political parties that are complaining if they wrote to meet with the President.
Buhari on Friday met with the leaders of the ruling APC and PDP. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was also in attendance.
The APC delegation at the meeting include: National Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun, Former Senate President Ken Nnamani, Former Information Minister Tony Momoh, Former Governor of Bayelsa State Governor Timipre Sylva, Senator Ifeanyi Ararume, among others.
While the PDP delegation was made up of; National Chairman Senator Ahmed Markarfi, Senator Ben Obi, Senator Stella Omu, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, and Professor T. Adeniran.topics from
