El-Rufai visits Gowon amid talks of plans to dump APC for new party



Nasir El-Rufai, the former governor of Kaduna State, paid a visit to the esteemed ex-military Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, at his residence in Abuja on Tuesday. This visit follows closely on the heels of El-Rufai’s meeting with leaders of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the second time.

This second visit has sparked further speculation regarding the potential departure of the former governor from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

El-Rufai was captured in photos at the Abuja residence of Senator Abubakar Gada, accompanied by SDP chairman Shehu Musa Gabam and other prominent party figures.

Among those reported to have attended the meeting were Senator Teslim Folarin, the APC gubernatorial candidate for Oyo State in the 2023 general elections, and Senator Nazif Suleiman, a key figure in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Bauchi State.

The gathering at Gada’s residence in Abuja on Sunday night came after El-Rufai hosted a Ramadan iftar at his Abuja home. Notable attendees at the iftar included the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, Kashim Ibrahim-Imam, Shehu Musa Gabam, and others.
