We are united behind Mr President and we thank him and we are united behind the caretaker committee.“We are one group of stakeholders in the party and our party respects institutions.The appropriate organ of the party is the caretaker committee that will announce a date.” Those in attendance included the Governors of Borno State, Babagana Zulum; Jigawa State, Mohammad Abubakar; Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu; Niger State, Abubakar Bello; Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai; Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi; and Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.Others are Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade; Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun; Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle; Ebonyi State, David Umahi; Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola; Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Imo State, Hope Uzodimma; Plateau State, Solomon Lalong; Kano State, Dr.While Aregbesola’s men had placed demands for Oyetola’s resignation from the APC interim national leadership, ratification of congresses conducted by the group and recognition of its members by government before the Abudulahi Adamu-led National Reconciliation Committee, the group has also said it would not withdraw the case it instituted against the ward congress until it got favourable decision from the party’s leadership.
