The national caucus of the All Progressive Congress (APC) discussed true federalism when it met with President Muhammadu Buhari, says John Oyegun, national chairman of the party.
Oyegun said there was no talk of his removal from office during the meeting at the presidential villa, Abuja.
He dismissed insinuations that members of the national caucus deliberated on a court case instituted against him by some aggrieved members of the party.
Some members of the APC had dragged the national chairman to court over what they described as “illegal tenure elongation”.
“No, the meeting concluded the agenda we started the last time we met which we did not complete,” Oyegun said on Monday.
“Today we discussed true federalism, something a lot more serious, a lot more serious.”
Meanwhile, Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, said the national executive council of the APC will decide on the tenure elongation of Oyegun when it meets on Tuesday.
The APC chairman’s tenure, which is to expire June 30, was in February extended by one year.
“It is not a question of my being worried because I am just one perhaps of millions of APC members,” Dogara said.
“Like I said, certainly it’s going to be an agenda for the consideration of NEC, whatever NEC decides, that will be binding on all of us as faithful members of the party.”
The APC caucus meeting was attended by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, former APC governors, members of the national assembly, ministers, among others.
Bola Tinubu, former Lagos state governor, and Bisi Akande, former interim leader of the party, were absent at the meeting.
