Osinbajo meets Adamawa, Bauchi governors
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday held separate private meetings with governors Mohammadu Abubakar of Bauchi State and Jibrila Bindow of Adamawa.
The meetings may not be unconnected with the governorship elections that were declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the states.
INEC had announced that a supplementary election would be held in the states on March 23.
Both governors declined to speak with State House correspondents after emerging from the meeting.
In both Bauchi and Adamawa, the opposition PDP candidates were leading in the elections before they were declared inconclusive.
Both states are two of six states where such is the case.
INEC also fixed March 23 for supplementary elections in Benue, Kano, Plateau and Sokoto states where governorship elections were also declared inconclusive.
Of the six states, the PDP was leading in five while the APC led in Plateau before the elections were declared inconclusive.
