SAHARANEWS has obtained exclusive details of the closed door meeting between two front runners in the Abia State governorship election, Alex Otti of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and Uche Ogah of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at an undisclosed location yesterday.
According to an impeccable source who spoke with SaharaNews on the condition that she will not be named, the meeting is aimed at forming an alliance between both parties to produce a consensus governorship candidate ahead of the March 9, 2019 gubernatorial election in the state to defeat the incumbent governor Okozie Ikpeazu of PDP.
Our source said there are green lights but the parties are yet to work out all the details of the understanding…
“Most of the other details have been agreed on but the critical question of who to step down could not be resolved as at the end of the last meeting” our source said.
The two parties are expected to meet again within the next 24 hours to iron our the rough edges.
