The governors of Ogun, Oyo and Osun states on Wednesday night held a closed-door meeting with the former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande, at the Government House, Isale-Igbein, Abeokuta.
This came after they left the ‘Tributes Day’ held by the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, in honour of the late Sir Olaniwun Ajayi, an Afenifere chieftain, at his Isara-Remo home.
Akande in company with the governors of Oyo and Osun states, Abiola Ajimobi and Rauf Aregbesola, visited the Ogun State Government House, Abeokuta and held a closed-door meeting with the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun.
Our correspondent gathered that the meeting, which lasted for one hour, was not unconnected with the crisis rocking the APC.
Emerging from the Government House, both Akande and Ajimobi, while fielding questions from journalists, however, denied that there was crisis in the APC.
When asked by journalists on the alleged rift among some leaders in the party, Akande merely replied, “There is no crisis in the party, we are one.”
Ajimobi also said the party was crisis-free.
When asked why he was not at the APC governorship rally in Ondo State, Ajimobi simply replied, “Some of us were out of the country. Me, for example, I was in China.”
There was however a mild drama shortly after the closed- door meeting, as Aregbesola walked out on journalists who tried to get his comment.
