But most importantly, all of us decided to meet to jointly congratulate our colleague, the governor of Osun State who recently won his primary election in a manner we expected. All of us are happy for him and that’s why we all stayed long to discuss, throw banters and share happy moments with him.”
The Forum Chairman said the APC Southwest Governors’ position on the postponement of the national convention of the party, will be made known at an enlarged meeting of the party, which will be held later in the evening.
