Six governors are scheduled to leave Nigeria to visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London, Punch reports.
According the news medium, among them are those elected under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
It was also reported that the visit was being organised by the office of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Munguno (retd.).
Listed among the six governors are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), and Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo).
A governor told Punch that those who were visiting were chosen outside the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.
He said, “Our colleagues are going to London to see the President. But I’m not happy that someone like the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, or his Rivers State counterpart, Mr. Nyesom Wike, is not on the delegation.
“Though there are PDP governors on the delegation, we know ourselves and also know those we know are truly part of the opposition and those close to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
“The governors had been directed to be at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, tomorrow (Tuesday). From there, they will fly to the United Kingdom.”
