Some aggrieved Senators on the platform of the All Progressives Congress have met with President MUHAMMADU BUHARI in Abuja.

The Senators, numbering about 22, had pledged to defect from the party over the outcome of primaries in their state ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Senator ORJI UZOR KALU who led the delegation said in a statement that the lawmakers felt disenfranchised by the process.

President BUHARI while speaking at the meeting urged the Senators to exercise restraint in their decision to defect from the party.

KALU said that after the meeting, the aggrieved Senators would no longer pursue defection from the APC.

“Earlier this afternoon, I led the 22 aggrieved Senators and members of the All Progressive Congress to President Muhammad Buhari,GCFR,” Kalu, the Chief Whip of the ninth senate, said in a statement.

“Our meeting with Mr President was successful and the issue of decamping from our party has been laid to rest.”
