PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed doors with Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Governors Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu and the Jigawa State Governor, Abubakar Badaru at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting came barely 24 hours after the Supreme Court sacked the Governor-Elect of the November 19, 2019 election in Bayelsa State, Chief David Lyon and the Deputy Governor-Elect, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremieoyo. 

The duo contested the election on the platform of the APC. 

Recall that Governor Badaru was Chairman of the APC governorship campaign for the November 19, 2019 election in Bayelsa State.

The two governors joined President Buhari for juma’at service at the State House Mosque before the meeting.

There have been disquiet at the Presidential Villa after the Supreme Court judgment on Thursday that sacked the Bayelsa State Governor-Elect, Chief David Lyon and the Deputy Governor-Elect,
