After the news of the visit, rumours has been going on as to the reason behind the call for the meeting by the President.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina; and the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, disclosed to State House correspondents at a press conference at the Presidential Villa, Abuja that the reason for the visit is “due to change in circumstances “.
When asked to give specific details on the mission of state governors who will be visiting Buhari on Wednesday.
He said this was the proper time for him to receive delegations rather than when he was indisposed, and the visit is a goodwill visit , nothing more than that.
“I believe Nigerians in various positions have yearned to go and meet the President and at some point, this obviously has not been permitted.
“But given the change in circumstances, you can see that it is coming from London itself and the President is welcoming it.
Shehu further said, “You will notice that those that went at the weekend are members of the All Progressives Congress.
“So, those who are going now are on a broader platform, which is the Nigeria Governors’ Forum. As to who is sponsoring, I don’t have any information on that”.
