    Former Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, recently visited former military Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, at his residence in Abuja on Tuesday. This visit comes in the wake of El-Rufai’s second meeting with leaders of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), sparking rumors of his potential departure from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

    During his visit to Senator Abubakar Gada’s residence in Abuja, El-Rufai was accompanied by SDP Chairman Shehu Musa Gabam and other party officials. Also in attendance were Senator Teslim Folarin, APC gubernatorial candidate for Oyo State in the 2023 elections, and Senator Nazif Suleiman, a prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Bauchi State.

    This meeting followed El-Rufai’s hosting of a Ramadan iftar at his Abuja residence, attended by figures such as National Security Adviser Nuhu Ribadu, Kashim Ibrahim-Imam, Shehu Musa Gabam, among others. Additionally, El-Rufai visited the SDP secretariat, further intensifying speculation about his potential political realignment.
