After his meeting with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders on Wednesday, Senate President Bukola Saraki on Thursday met with President Muhamamdu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and some governors behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Some of the All Progressives Party (APC) state governors who also attended the meeting were Aminu Masari of Katsina State, Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State.
Kayode Fayemi, the soon-to-be Governor of Ekiti State, attended as well.
Saraki, who is scheduled to join the PDP next week, held a meeting with Uche Secondus, National Chairman of the PDP; Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State and n-PDP’ leaders, on Wednesday.
