2023: No single PDP member present as APC Governors visit Jonathan
NEWS DIGEST – Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) held a private meeting with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja on Friday evening.
The Cable Newspaper reports that No single member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was present.
Mai Mala Buni, governor of Yobe state and acting national chairman of the APC, led the governors to Jonathan’s residence in Abuja.
David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi who recently defected to the APC from the PDP; Atiku Bagudu, governor of Kebbi and chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum; and Abubakar Badaru, governor of Jigawa, were at the meeting, TheCable was informed.
Also in the team was Kashim Ibrahim-Imam, former presidential liaison officer to the national assembly.
It is unclear what the focus of their discussion was but an insider told The Cable “2023 permutations are taking shape”.
Jonathan was elected president in 2011 and lost to Buhari in 2015, but he is still qualified to run having only spent one term of four years in office.
