Chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), on Monday passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of the party.
Gov. Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara made this known at the end of a caucus meeting of the party which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said that the meeting also reinforced the unity, commitment and strength of all members of the party.
Sen. Bukar Abba-Ibrahim, who also spoke on the outcome of the meeting, dismissed the speculation that it was convened to remove the leadership of the APC.
He said: “You remember, you saw it in some of the newspapers that our crises had deepened and that APC is going to break,. Some newspapers even reported that there is a plan to kick out our national chairman – none of these things happened.
“It is a big family reunion and we are all happy and this party is going to dominate the Nigerian political space for a very long time to come. I don’t want to predict any number of years.”
The party’s National Chairman Mr John Odigie-Oyegun, described the caucus as `very fantastic’, adding that the party would be stronger after its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Tuesday in Abuja.
The meeting was attended by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Sen. Bola Tinubu, Bisi Akande, cabinet ministers, presidential aides, some governors of APC states.
Members of the National Assembly including Senators Rabiu Kwankwaso and Adamu Alieru, as well as the new Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha also attended the meeting which lasted for over three hours.
