Senate Presidency: Osinbajo, Ndume Hold A Closed Door Meeting At The Presidential Villa, Abuja
The senator arrived the villa at about 3.20 p.m and headed for the vice-president’s office for the meeting whose agenda was unknown to State House correspondents.
The meeting was however to deliberate on socio-political issues including the forthcoming election of new leadership for the ninth National Assembly.
The National leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had implored all APC members-elect of the National Assembly to support its decision to elect Sen. Ahmed Lawan and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as Senate President and Speaker of the Federal House Representatives respectively.
But Ndume is not going to be persuaded to give way to APC decision but had insisted to contest for the seat of Senate president.
Ndume’s action has generated heat within the party.
