Act­ing Pres­i­dent Yemi Os­in­bajo and state chair­men of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) yes­ter­day met be­hind closed doors at the Aso Rock Pres­i­den­tial Villa in Abuja.

Ad­dress­ing State House cor­re­spon­dents later, the leader of the del­e­ga­tion and chair­man of the Lagos chap­ter of the APC, Mr Henry Ajo­male, said the meet­ing dis­cussed the health of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari, who is cur­rently in Lon­don on med­i­cal va­ca­tion.

Ajo­male said: “We feel that we should come and pay a cour­tesy call on the act­ing pres­i­dent, a mem­ber of our party. So, we dis­cussed at length the sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try and our anx­i­ety on the health of the pres­i­dent.

“And that we are grate­ful that God in his in­fi­nite mercy has made him whole which is very crit­i­cal and im­por­tant for the vi­sion that we have for this coun­try as APC gov­ern­ment."

He said Os­in­bajo was able to brief them on the sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try, es­pe­cially on the state of the econ­omy "and the so­lu­tion and an­ti­dotes to some of the mi­rage of prob­lems that is fac­ing this coun­try.

“We are very im­pressed with the sit­u­a­tion. We will go back to our states and let the peo­ple know that the gov­ern­ment has very good in­ten­tion and we should be part and par­cel of the gov­ern­ment in or­der to en­sure that the poor peo­ple of this coun­try are get­ting bet­ter deal.”

He said they were sat­is­fied with im­ple­men­ta­tion of the present ad­min­is­tra­tion's poli­cies which he af­firmed were tai­lored to­wards im­prov­ing the lives of Nige­ri­ans.

Ajo­male com­mended Buhari's ad­min­is­tra­tion's fight against cor­rup­tion.
