President Muhammadu Buhari said he is not ready to meet members of the Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) bloc within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The president made his position known at a meeting with APC governors in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja last week, Daily Trust learnt last night.
Members of the nPDP, who defected from the People’s Democratic Party before the 2015 general elections, had recently protested, among other things, what they called their marginalisation in the ruling APC.
Sources at last week’s meeting revealed that President Buhari insisted that the nPDP members’ grievances were for the party to settle and that he would not interfere.
The president was however said to have told the governors that the fence-mending move initiated by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo should continue.
One of the sources at the meeting said while some of the governors urged Buhari to ignore the nPDP members, others canvassed that Osinbajo should continue to discuss with them.
The president, the sources added, also asked the governors, as party leaders in their own right, to handle the issues and that if need be, the leadership of the party could wade in.
Buhari was quoted as telling the governors: “It is a party matter. I am not ready to sit down with any faction. If they have problems, they should go to the party.
“I will not interfere. Governors as party leaders in the states should deal with all issues. Where there is need, the party leadership can come in. I will not get involved.”
The nPDP members, led by Kawu Baraje, had on May 29 met behind closed doors with Osinbajo at the latter’s official residence, Akinola Aguda House, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

We never sent Nigerian migrants back to Libya – Italian envoy
Tue, 19 Jun 2018

The Italian Ambassador to Nigeria, Stefano Pontesilli has dismissed reports that Italy sometimes sent some migrants, including Nigerians on sea route to Europe back to Libya.
The envoy told newsmen in Abuja that though thousands of Nigerian migrants were trapped in Libya; those who made the perilous journey to Italy were never sent back to the North African country.

“We never sent anyone, not even one single person to Libya. Some Nigerians are stuck in Libya because they were never able to cross over to Italy.
“But all those who went to Italy, no one, not even one was ever sent back. All Nigerians who have reached Italy and are behaving well have no problem,” he said.
He said the Italian government has been doing so much on migration by saving thousands of lives, including that of Nigerians during the Mediterranean crossing.
“Authority has been doing so much in taking them to Italy, feeding them, getting them jobs, giving them house and trying to give them a new life,” he said.
The envoy also disclosed that about 1,500 Nigerians were serving various jail terms in Italy.
“In Italy we have about 1500 Nigerians in jail. It’s a big number. We send them back to Nigeria once they finish their terms because they have not behaved well,” he said.
Pontesilli commended the “strong” bilateral relations between Nigeria and Italy, saying the stability and security of Nigeria is “Our foremost consideration.
“We think that without a stable and secure country, there cannot be development. So that’s why we stand strongly behind President Muhammadu Buhari in trying to establish a strong, safe and stable Nigeria.

He said the Italian government had been providing security assistance to Nigeria, including training of Nigerian security officers.
