Former Vice President, and rumoured 2019 Presidential Aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has set tongues wagging as he was not present at the APC Caucus meeting held yesterday, in which Chief John Oyegun was given a vote of Confidence by party leaders amid calls for his resignation.
Although the National Caucus meeting was well attended, a notable figure in the party, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, was conspicuously absent.
However, his spokesperson, Paul Ibe, told PREMIUM TIMES that Mr. Abubakar’s absence was not planned because “he has been out of the country for six weeks, long before the meeting was announced”.
Those who attended the meeting include governors, some ministers, lawmakers, as well as Mr. Tinubu and the former national chairman of the party, Bisi Akande.
There were also former governors and top government officials in the APC administration.
