Abubakar’s visit to the party's national secretariat was his first since President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in.

On arrival, Atiku walked straight to the office of the National Chairman, John Oyegun where they met for about 20 minutes before other national officers were called into the meeting, reports The Nation

The agenda of the meeting was however not clear, but may not be unconnected with the state of the party that has been finding it difficult to pay its bills as well as the running of the party.

The former VP failed to speak with the press on his visit as he was shielded from the media by two NWC members despite signed that he wanted to do so.
