The Peoples Democratic Party has begun plans to meet aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress otherwise known as the New PDP.
Though the party has been meeting with individuals to form a coalition against the ruling All Progressives Congress in the past, it was however gathered that the main opposition party had stepped up consultations following the open declaration by the members of the nPDP, who are in the APC, that the ruling party and President Muhammadu Buhari last week were marginalising them.
Some members of the nPDP being led by a former National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Kawu Baraje and a former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, had written a letter to President Buhari, demanding an urgent meeting with him.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, confirmed the desire of the party to meet the aggrieved APC members to The PUNCH correspondents on Sunday.
