Tinubu: President-Elect Meets APC Governors

President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has charged the APC Governors to remain united and work with party leadership to ensure the success of the incoming administration.

Tinubu made the call on Thursday in Abuja when he met with the All Progressives Congress governors who paid him a courtesy visit.

In a statement signed by one of his aides, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu urged them to work with the party leadership and lawmakers on the election of principal officers of the National Assembly.

"We thank God Almighty for our electoral victory. It was tough and turbulent.  

"The challenge before us is working in unison with the party leadership and the National Assembly over the election of their principal officers.

"And I charge you to unite in spirit and faith and work in line with the party," he said.

The President-elect told the governors and former governorship candidates of the party that "whether you return or not, this is our government.

"Once we know what we are doing and communicating as elected leaders and loyal party men, we will conquer the challenge."

He reiterated his earlier admonitions that, as leaders, they were elected to serve the people and humanity with fairness and justice.

Dismissing speculations about his health, the President-elect said: "All speculations have been perished and their purveyors brought to shame."

The Chairman of the party in Kebbi State, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, led his colleagues to Tinubu's residence. 

Among those in attendance were Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima and Governors Simon Lalong (Plateau), Nasir el-Rufai (Kaduna), Aminu Bello Masari (Katsina), Hope Uzodinnma (Imo), Abubakar Badaru (Jigawa), Babajide Sanwo-olu (Lagos), Ben Ayade (CrossRivers), Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq (Kwara), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun) and Biodun Oyebanji (Ekiti).

There were also the Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe and APC governorship candidate in Kano State, Alhaji Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna.

Governor Bagudu said the visit was to congratulate Asíwájú Tinubu over the election, extend goodwill to him over the end of Ramadan Fast and welcome him back from his recent travel and celebrate with him. 

He also said, however, that the governors were ready for any assignment the President-elect may give them.
