El-Rufai visits Gowon after meeting SDP leaders amid defection speculation


Nasir El-Rufai, a former governor of Kaduna State, paid a visit to Yakubu Gowon, the former military head of state.

On Tuesday, El-Rufai paid a visit to Gowon’s residence in Abuja.

The meeting comes just after the APC head met with Social Democratic Party (SDP) leaders for the second time.

The second visit reinforced suspicions that the former governor intends to abandon the APC.

El-Rufai was pictured at the Abuja residence of Senator Abubakar Gada, along with SDP chairman Shehu Musa Gabam and other party leaders.

Also reported to be present at the meeting were Senator Teslim Folarin, APC, gubernatorial candidate for Oyo State in the 2023 general elections, and Senator Nazif Suleiman, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from Bauchi State.

The meeting at Gada’s home in Abuja on Sunday night came after El-Rufai hosted a Ramadan iftar at his Abuja residence.

Those at the Ramadan iftar include the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, Kashim Ibrahim-Imam, Shehu Musa Gabam, and others.

El-Rufai also visited Gabam at the SDP secretariat.
