Newsmen  report that the meeting between the president and the aggrieved members which lasted for about one and half hours, was held behind closed door.

Musa Soba, representing Soba constituency in Kaduna state, who spoke after the meeting, said they were summoned by the president to present their complaints arising from the conduct of the APC primaries.

He disclosed that the aggrieved members who were denied the opportunity to re-contest for their seats in 2019 general elections were over 70.

Soba revealed that they appealed to the president to use his good office to intervene in what they described as impunity exhibited by some state governors and APC leadership in the affected states to deny them tickets to contest for the election.

Hussaini Kangiwa, who also attend the meeting, allegedly accused some elders in the state of hijacking APC structure.

Kangiwa, who was an aspirant for Kebbi North Senatorial District, also accused the APC leadership in the state of nepotism in the selection of candidates for the 2019 National Assembly elections.
