The Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has met behind closed doors with Sen. Ali Ndume at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to reports, the senator arrived at the villa at about 3:20 pm and headed to the vice-president’s office for the meeting.
NAN reports that the meeting was not in connection with the forthcoming election of new leadership for the ninth National Assembly (NASS).
The National Leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) earlier charged all APC members-elect in the national assembly to support the party’s choice of candidates for the leadership positions.
APC endorsed Sen. Ahmed Lawan for the seat of Senate President and Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila for the position of Speaker of the House Representatives.
Meanwhile, Sen. Ndume has continued to insist to contest for the seat of Senate president.
