BREAKING: Buhari meets Kwankwaso, other senators in Aso Rock
Against the backdrop of police summons for Senate President Bukola Saraki, President Muhammadu Buhari has met with some senators led by Rabiu Kwankwaso in an apparent bid to convince them to remain in the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
Rabiu Kwankwaso and other senators were sighted at the presidential villa, Abuja on Monday night along with Jigawa State governor, Abubakar Badaru.
Kwankwaso representing Kano State is also believed to be on the verge of leaving the APC having fallen out with his state governor and former protege, Umar Ganduje.
There had been reports that Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, were to meet with President Buhari and Vice President’s Yemi Osinbajo last Sunday over the same issue but the meeting did not materialize.
Saraki, who has hinted that he was considering his future in the APC, has again been summoned by the Inspector General of Police to appear at the office of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) in Abuja, the Federal Capital territory (FCT), over his alleged linkage to the wide-ranging robbery operation that resulted in the death of 33 people in Offa, Kwara State in April.
