Senate President, Bukola Saraki held a meeting on Wednesday with the National Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus.
The meeting which was graced by several party chieftains of the PDP also had Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, who recently dumped the APC in attendance. Also in attendance at the meeting were Sokoto State Governor and the former speaker of the House of Reps, Aminu Tambuwal, former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and a host of others.
The meeting may spark another round of rumours of the Senate President and his loyalists switching allegiance to the PDP after the APC sought to know where he truly belongs.
Meanwhile, Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed who was also present at the meeting disclosed his decision about the APC. Ahmed said he is undecided about his continuous loyalty to the ruling party.
In a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, he said;
“Kwara State Governor Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed is yet to take a decision on his political future with the APC. The presence today in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, of the Senate President, His Excellency, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, PDP Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, Governor Samuel Ortom , Governor Aminu Tambuwal and Governor Nyesom Wike, Ex Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, Senator Barnabas Gemade and other prominent political figures was for the burial rites of the late mother of respected politician, Alh Kawu Baraje and was not for the purpose of a political realignment.
While I have not been briefed on any planned defection, I am aware that my principal and other political leaders in the state are gradually being shown the way out of the APC.”
