President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday night met with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and the pioneer leader Interim Chairman of the ruling party, Chief Bisi Akande, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The meeting was held at the official residence of the President. The visitors were at the president's home to pay condolence to him over last Friday’s air crash which claimed the lives of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, and ten other officers and men in Kaduna.

Tinubu and Akande were accompanied on the visit by former Ogun Governor Chief Segun Osoba; former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Alani Akinrinade (Rtd.), and Chief Pius Akinyelure, PM News reported.

On Monday Buhari also met with a delegation from the Nigeria Governors’ Forum at the State House, who came to condole with him on the fatal air crash.

During the governors’ visit, Buhari said, only God knew why the incident happened as he expressed a resolve to work harder.

Buhari told the delegation that he hoped that God would provide the enablement for the country to deal with its challenges.

“To lose choice officers has increased our problem but we know what we are in for and we will continue to work hard and pray hard so that God will give us the power to appreciate and apply ourselves to the problem,” President Buhari said.

“This is a situation that only God knows when it will happen and it happened at a time when the security situation in the country is a fundamental issue.

“The people who elected us, they know the promises we made within the time…the circumstances in which we find ourselves…we will keep on trying and continue to do our best.”

The delegation includes the Chairman of the NGF and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi; the Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) National Caretaker Committee and Yobe state governor, Mai Mala Buni, and Governor Sani Bello of Niger State.
