Atiku-BuhariFormer Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on Wednesday met with President-elect, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Defence House, Abuja.

Although the former vice president said discussions held during the brief meeting were private, he told reporters that the APC had the capacity to resolve issues surrounding the zoning of offices especially at the National Assembly.

When asked why he met with the president-elect, Mr. Abubakar said, “We just discussed private matters”, adding that it was too early to talk about resolving the issue of zoning.

“That is too early. This is something the leadership and the party is handling. I believe it will be resolved before the House is reconvened (in June)”, he said.

The former APC presidential aspirant expressed confidence that the emergence of Buhari and the APC would bring about the change that Nigerians had been yearning for.

He, however, urged Nigerians to give the incoming administration time to deal with the issues it was going to confront.

Atiku said, “Really, changes will come. The President-elect has assured the people that, but it will not just come overnight; it has to be gradual. Definitely, there will be positive change in that matter but it will be gradual”.
