The leadership of the faction held a strategy meeting in Abuja last night
The seven governors of the Abubakar Baraje faction of the Peoples Democratic Party are currently meeting behind closed doors with President of the Senate, David Mark.
There is also a separate meeting between the chairman Baraje himself and his supporters at the House of Representatives. Speaker Aminu Tambuwal is expected to lead the leadership of the House to the meeting.
The leadership of the faction and its seven governors last night held a strategy meeting where they reviewed the outcome of Sunday’s meeting between the ‘rebel’ governors and the president.
The meeting, our source said, also considered strategies for strengthening the faction in the light of last week’s pronouncement by Justice Elvis Chukwu of an Abuja High Court regarding the status of the faction.
The faction, we further learnt, also discussed the closure of its national and states secretariats by the police.
Also discussed was last week’s resignation of the National Treasurer of the faction, Tanko Gwamna, who subsequently pledged his allegiance to the BamangaTukur-led faction of the party.
The faction’s topshots, we learnt, also worked out modalities for identifying moles within its rank, our source said.
