Senate President Bukola Saraki and Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, today had a closed door meeting with leaders of the opposition party, PDP.
The meeting held at Saraki’s country home in Ilorin, Kwara state. Other governors who attended the meeting included Abdufatah Ahmed of Kwara State, Nysome Wike of Rivers State, and Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State.
The meeting was held after the politicians attended a prayer session organised for the late mother of Abubakar Kawu Baraje.
A former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, Senator Barnabas Gemade and other prominent political figures were also in attendance at the meeting.
The meeting comes amidst speculations that Saraki and Ortom were planning to defect from the ruling APC to the opposition party, PDP.
