The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Uche Secondus alongside some PDP leaders and governors on Wednesday held a meeting with the Senate President Bukola Saraki at his residence in Ilorin, Kwara State capital.
The governors include Abdufatah Ahmed of Kwara State, Nysome Wike of Rivers State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State and Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State
The meeting was held after the dignitaries attended a prayer session organised for the late mother of Abubakar Kawu Baraje. Earlier reports had indicated that Ahmed, Tambuwal and Ortom were plotting to pull out of the APC.
On Monday, Ortom announced his defection from the APC noting that he had been given a “red card” in the ruling party and is currently exploring a new option to actualise his future ambition.
Although some of the leaders explained that the gathering was for a religious purpose, Rivers State Governor Wike after the door meeting with Saraki said, that there is nothing wrong for political friends to come together and discuss.
