President Muhammadu Buhari has asked all governors elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress to avoid going into the party’s forthcoming national convention with a divided house.

He advised them to approach the convention in unity so that the party can come out stronger after the exercise. Buhari gave the advice at a meeting he had with the governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday evening.

The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha; and his Kogi State counterpart, Yahaya Bello, spoke with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting that ended at about 11pm.

“Mr. President is our father and as governors of APC, we usually meet with him from time to time to rub minds and discuss issues that concern our party and the country. “He (the President) wished all of us well and advised us that we should approach the convention in unity. We all agreed to go there in unity and come out stronger,” Bello said.

Okorocha, who is the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, said despite seeming disagreements, the party was more united than ever before.
