Members of the Alhaji Kawu Baraje-led new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), an aggrieved group within the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), continued their consultations on their future in the APC in Abuja Monday, holding a late night meeting to determine the way forward.
An insider told THISDAY Monday night that the outcome of the consultations, which started on Sunday night in one of their members’ house in Asokoro, Abuja, would finally decide their next line of action.
Among those said to have met Monday night included, the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki; the Governor of Sokoto State, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, and about 50 lawmakers from both chambers of the National Assembly.
“From the conversation that started on Sunday night, majority of us have decided we should leave the APC; that has been concluded; there is no going back,’’ a member of the group told THISDAY Monday night in Abuja.
However, the source added that members of the group appeared to be divided over which party to move to, saying: ‘’While majority of us agreed we should move straight to the PDP, others are saying we should first and foremost form a coalition with SDP, ADC and others before we negotiate with PDP.’’
