Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) have held a meeting on the state of the nation.

The group, known as nPDP, had in April written to the leadership of the APC to complain about being neglected by the current administration.

Kawu Baraje, leader of the nPDP faction, said the recent meeting held by members of the group was to review the state of the nation and the APC.

According to Baraje, the nPDP members also discussed “how to rescue Nigeria from economic, social, political and especially security challenges”.

He said: “Nigerians may recall that members of the former new PDP block within the All Progressives Congress (APC) addressed a letter dated April 27, 2018 to the chairman of APC where we informed the party of our grievances and expectations from both the party and government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Following this development, the party invited us and we honoured their invitation for a meeting. We met with the leadership of the party last week during which we resolved to report the outcome of our meeting to our members and stakeholders before arriving at any decision or proceeding with the next phase of discussions or actions with the APC and government.

“I am glad to inform you therefore that we have briefed our members at a meeting convened in Abuja on Wednesday, 23rd May 2018 where we reviewed the state of the nation and our party, APC and constituted committees on various issues especially on how to rescue Nigeria from economic, social, political and especially security challenges.

“The meeting was well attended by members of the nPDP including serving and former governors, senators, members of the house of representatives, and other aggrieved APC stakeholders.”

Senate President Bukola Saraki, Yakubu Dogara, speaker, house of representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, Sokoto governor, and Rabiu Kwankwaso, former Kano governor, were among those present at the meeting.
