The G7 Governors in the newPDP have dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to pitch their tenth with the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC.
The decision was the fall out of an early morning crucial meeting between the G-7 governors and top leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
The meeting which began at 9.30am at Kano Governor’s Lodge followed a similar one by the governors that ended at midnight.
Although the agenda of the session were sketchy at press time, there were indications that it might be connected with overtures to the governors by APC leadership.
A top source, who spoke in confidence, said: “The meeting is the last in the series to guide the governors to either remain in PDP or defect to APC. It is part of the ongoing consultations by the aggrieved governors.”
Those at the meeting are a former head of state, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), the National Chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande, the National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Governors Rotimi Amaechi, Murtala Nyako, Abdulfatai Ahmed, Rabiu Kwankwaso, ex-Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola, ex-Governor Bukola Saraki and Imam Kashim among others.
