President Muhammadu Buhari has invited All Progressives Congress (APC) governors for a meeting on the need to speed up the pace of delivering campaign promises amid the poor economy.

The session, which will hold tomorrow in Abuja, may also discuss how to keep the party united and involve the governors on some key appointments.

Some of the governors were said to be concerned that they were being kept in the dark on some strategic appointments made from their states.

According sources, the notice of the meeting was sent to all the governors on Saturday through the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, Owelle Rochas Okorocha.

The notice reads in part: “”I am directed inform you that there is a meeting of all APC Governors with HE President Muhammadu Buhari as follows:Time: 2.00 pm (Note that all Governors are requested to be seated not later than 1.30 pm) Date: Tuesday, July 26, 2016. Venue: Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“I am directed to appeal to Your Excellency to please create time and attend as crucial matters of national importance will be deliberated upon.”

The letter to the APC governors was signed by the Director-General Progressive Governors Forum, Salihu Moh. Lukman.

But the letter was silent on the agenda of the meeting.

A governor, who spoke in confidence, said: “The meeting was at the instance of the President and we are suspecting that it might be a stock-taking session.

“We have not been able to interface with the President on the performance of the APC administration at the Federal and state levels in the last one year.

“You will recall that the President himself assured the nation that the second year of his government will be a turning point in the life of this country.

“So, we will use the opportunity to review our campaign promises, tell ourselves the truth and chart a way forward on how to fill in some governance gaps.”

The source spoke of “the crisis of confidence among our party leaders”, which he described as not encouraging.

“Our leaders are no longer as united as we were in 2015 when we defeated the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP). Some of us want us to reunite all groups.

“Some of the governors are also unhappy that they have not been carried along in some appointments conceded to their states,” the source added..

“Mr. President intends to make more appointments in the next few weeks, we hope to make some input to assist the President to make his choices,” he said.

Another source said: “I think the President may give us confidential briefing on certain things that have defined his administration like the oil crisis, threats by Niger Delta Avengers and agitators in the South-East, Boko Haram, strategic appointments, anti-corruption war and others.

“Also, developments in the National Assembly in the past few months call for concern too. Some APC members have become disloyal to the party.

“We need to retrace our steps on a few things and reunite the family. This is part of what we may tell our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari.”
