The decision was arrived at after President Muhammadu Buhari met with the delegation of state governors elected on the platform of the party and the caretaker committee on Monday in Abuja.

The decision kicked against by rights and religious groups in the country has been applauded by the presidency, including Mr Adesina who described it as a very good development.
