Why Buhari Met with APC Senators - Oshiomhole

National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said President Muhammadu Buhari hosted to a dinner senators elected on the platform of the party, Monday night, to strategise on next month’s elections, with a view to ensuring victory at the polls. 

Oshiomhole, who gave this explanation in an interview with State House correspendents after the dinner, said event had provided an opportunity for the President to meet with the caucus of the Senate and the “incoming senators” (APC senatorial candidates). He expressed the hope that Nigerians would give APC a comfortable majority in the Senate and House of Representatives, based on the tenet of “one-man, one-vote.” 

He said: “Basically, the meeting was for the President to meet with the caucus of the Senate and the incoming senators by the grace of God. “The whole idea is for the President to have direct interaction with the senators and the senatorial candidates of the APC so that they will work hard and ensure that on the basis of one-man, one-vote, the outcome of the 2019 elections will be in our favour. “This is an opportunity for some of the senatorial candidates to meet with the President for the first time.” 

According to him, the meeting also enabled the President and the senators and party’s senatorial candidates the opportunity to compare and share notes on the campaigns of each of the senatorial districts.
