The national chairman of Nigeria’s ruling party, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has stated that his party is establishing an institute for progressive studies in Nigeria.
Mr. Oshiomhole stated this on Wednesday when he led members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja.
While briefing journalists at the Villa, he said the meeting was mainly to congratulate the president on his recent victory at the polls.
Mr. Buhari was declared the winner of the February 23 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
He scored 15,191,847 to defeat his closest rival, Atiku Abubakar, of the leading opposition, PDP who polled 11,262,978 votes.
Mr. Oshiomhole while explaining the rationale behind the establishment of the institute said it is mainly to educate its members to know more about the ideals of the party.
