An emergency meeting of leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party reportedly held in Abuja late Wednesday at the Akwa Ibom Lodge, Asokoro.
Those who attended the meeting included ,governors and members of the National Assembly.
Current matters gathered that the emergency meeting may not be unconnected with the defection of Dave Umahi,governor of Ebonyi State to the All Progressives Congress APC and reports that more governors and other notable personalities of the PDP in the South East may jump ship soon
Governor Umahi had told journalists that his defection was a protest against the PDP over marginalisation of the South East on the issue of Presidency but the PDP while wishing Umahi well for defecting to the ruling party, accused of joining the APC for personal reasons.
Party’s spokesman,Kola Ologbondiyan said at the fullness of time , Nigerians would know why Umahi’s defected to the APC.
