Two days after dumping the All Progressives Congress, APC, Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom flirted with Peoples Democratic Party, PDP on Wednesday, holding a secret meeting, alongside Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki with PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus and a presidential aspirant under PDP, Sule Lamido in Ilorin, Kwara State.
Also at the meeting, among others, were the Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed, a former PDP Chairman who also led the new-PDP bloc in the All Progressives Congress, Kawu Baraje and PDP Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
Mr. Ologbondiyan confirmed the meeting, saying it was a “brotherhood meeting”. But he also admitted political matters, including how to move Nigeria forward, were discussed.
He said, “It is a brotherhood meeting. Our leaders met and they shared thoughts on the future of Nigeria and how to improve on the living condition of Nigeria and how to make Nigeria a better place for all to live in.
“It was a convergence of notable Nigerians.”
It is understood that the politicians had joined the eighth fidau prayer for Baraje’s late mother, Aishat, before they later converged at Saraki’s house where they were joined by other politicians such as Lamido, Secondus and others who skipped the fidau.
