National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Oyegun, has said that issues relating to true federalism were addressed at the Party’s national caucus meeting which took place on Monday in Abuja.

After the closed-door meeting which lasted for over three hours, the party chairman told journalists that contrary to speculations that the meeting addressed a court case instituted against him by some aggrieved members of the party, they discussed other more important issues.

“It’s a meeting to conclude the agenda we started the last time we met which we didn’t complete.

“Today we’re discussing true federalism and something a lot more serious. Why should we be discussing court cases, courts are for lawyers and lawyers will go there, not here.

“Move forward, that belongs to history,” he told journalists who asked about the calls for his removal.

Also speaking, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, noted that the meeting was an opportunity to prepare for the National Executive Council Meeting holding on Tuesday.

“We had a good meeting and we deliberated on a number of issues which had to do with the Constitution which are very important issues and to prepare for NEC tomorrow,” he said.

The meeting which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari also had the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara in attendance.

Others present included the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, members of the cabinet and APC national working committee, governors and other party chieftains.
