Vice President Yemi Osinbajo last night hosted members of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) for Iftar at his official house in the Presidential Villa, Akinola Aguda House.

According to sources close to the Vice President's office, Osinbajo utilized the opportunity to meet with Governors about his rumored presidential ambition. He is set to declare his presidential ambition on Monday.

Six Governors, including Mallam Nasir El-Rufa'i (Kaduna) and Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), were already within the premises around 6:45 p.m.

Hope Uzodinma (Imo), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), and Gboyega Oyetola (Osun), represented by his Deputy were among the APC governors who arrived before the appointed time of 7 p.m.
Only the invited Governors and several of their aides were allowed into the Vice President's mansion for the meeting, which appeared to be closed to journalists.

Meanwhile, sources confirmed that Bola Ahmed Tinubu upon hearing that the VP was hosting APC Governors, also invited the Governors but was shunned.
