APC Hot Romancing PDP – Wike, Saraki, Ortom meet in Ilorin
NPBS had earlier reported about Senate President Bukola Saraki warming up for presidential race under the umbrella of PDP. Governor Samuel Ortom and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state met with Senate president Bukola Saraki in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital on Wednesday, July 18.
Although the purpose of their meting is not known yet, there is growing speculation that Ortom may defect to the Peoples Democratic Party after he announced his exit from the APC.
Also present was Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto and his Kwara counterpart, Fatai Ahmed.
It was rumored that that the meeting is geared towards the likely defection of the parties involved to the PDP ahead of 2019 elections.
Meanwhile, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, said the party has at no time shut out Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state from its fold.
