According to PREMIUM Times, the Reformed APC (R-APC) members were led to the Monday event by their leader, Buba Galadima, who met with leaders of opposition parties like the PDP and SDP to sign the memorandum of understanding.
It was gathered that apart from Galadima, others at the Monday meeting from the PDP include Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Senator Dino Melaye, and Akwa Ibom State Governor, Emmanuel Udom.
