Thirteen governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the North, after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Monday insisted the presidential ticket of the party must go to the South.

According to the chairman of the Northern Governors Forum (PGF) and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, who led the team to the meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the president has no anointed among the aspirants as the flag bearer of the party.


Briefing State House Correspondents after the meeting, Lalong said President Buhari has requested the governors to have a meeting with the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to resolve the issue of consensus candidate through democratic means.

Lalong, who was flanked by 12 other governors, said they told the president of their decision to ensure that power returns to the South for the sake of equity and unity of the country.
