Information reaching the PoliticsNGR newsdesk reveals that some members of the national assembly, 2 ex-governors, and a serving PDP governor are set to join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Newly sworn-in APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has been in marathon meetings in a desperate effort not to lose any of members of the APC to PDP. He had met with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and the entire APC caucus in the House of Representatives and the senate pleading with them to give him time to find solution to their grievances.
He had fruitful discussions with the aggrieved lawmakers as well as the former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Kwankwaso. But while they all appreciated his peace moves, they expressed regrets that the former leadership of the party allowed the crisis to fester too long before Oshiomhole came on board.
His marathon meetings were however not limited to those threatening to dump the APC, but with some top PDP leaders who were negotiating their way into the APC. At least one sitting PDP governor, two former PDP governors and some National Assembly members were already discussing with the new national chairman preparatory to joining the APC.
Oshiomhole also appealed to all the aggrieved members of the party to remain calm while assuring them that their complaints would be addressed.
