A former Governor of Osun State, Chief Bisi Akande is currently having a meeting with South West presidential aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In attendance are the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State; Chief Olusegun Osoba, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State; Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State and many others.
The meeting is reportedly holding at the Lagos State House, Marina.
It was gathered that APC leaders in the region are worried over the number of aspirants that have emerged to contest the party’s presidential ticket and vie for the 2023 presidency.
In order to save the South West from losing the ticket, it is understood that the APC leaders called the meeting to work out a way to cut down the number of presidential hopefuls from the zone.
The APC leaders are also concerned about the possible outcome because of the bad blood the ambition of the leading contenders for the APC ticket has already generated.
