Buhari: Governors’ Forum plans sending delegation to UK

There are strong indications that the Nigeria Governors’ Forum may send some governors to the United Kingdom to visit President Muhammadu Buhari, except the President returns home between now and next week.

Saturday PUNCH learnt that the plan to send a delegation to the President was part of the discussion at the last governors’ meeting in Abuja, which ended in the early hours of Thursday.

An impeccable source at the meeting, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the governors also decided to send a goodwill message to the President’s family in Nigeria.

The source, however, hinted that the President might return home very soon based on the information available to the governors.

He explained that representatives of the Governors’ Forum would have embarked on the UK trip immediately but for the information pointing towards the President’s return anytime from now.

A governor, who was at the meeting, who also spoke with one of our correspondents on condition of anonymity, said that the decision was taken at the governors meeting in Abuja on Thursday night.
