PDP To APC: Abdullahi Adamu, Uzodinma, Ekweremadu Hold Closed-Door Meeting

 

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Abdullahi Adamu has met with Governor Hope Uzodinma and former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu behind closed-doors.

Naija News reports that the meeting between the trio was held at the National Secretariat of the governing APC on Monday.

It was gathered that the meeting between the political bigwigs lasted for three hours.

Governor Uzodinma had told newsmen after the meeting that he was at the Secretariat to see his ‘friend’ for a tete-a-tete.

Naija News reports that the meeting may be connected to the allege plan of Ekweremadu to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC.

Ekweremadu is reportedly plotting to join the ruling APC and grab the party’s gubernatorial ticket for Enugu ahead of next year’s election.

Recall that the Enugu State Chairman of the APC, Ugochukwu Agballa, rejected pleas by Ekweremadu to pick the governorship ticket of the party.

Agballa accused the former Senate leader of asking the party to give him its ticket despite the emergence of Uche Nnaji as its gubernatorial candidate.

While describing the demand by the lawmaker as evil, he said Ekweremadu was mounting pressure on the APC to grab its ticket.

According to him, the former Deputy Senate President is blinded by his ambition, promising to treat Ekweremadu like a mad man if he joins the APC.
