Former Kaduna State Governor and prominent member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nasir El-Rufai, recently held a significant meeting with the stakeholders of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

This gathering, captured in viral photographs and videos, has intensified speculations about El-Rufai's future political aspirations.

The former Kaduna Governor reportedly attended the meeting at the Abuja residence of Senator Abubakar Gada, alongside SDP chairman Shehu Musa Gabam and other party officials.

In a surprising turn of events, El-Rufai also paid an unexpected visit to the national secretariat of the Social Democratic Party in Abuja last Wednesday, according to SaharaReporters.

Sources close to the incident revealed that El-Rufai's visit to the opposition party's secretariat was a "surprise visit" aimed at strengthening his political alliances in preparation for the upcoming 2027 general elections.

The sources further indicated that the former Governor, who is a prominent member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was there for a consultation meeting with the National Chairman of the SDP, Alhaji Shehu Musa Gabam.

Notably, last Friday, Daniel Bwala, a former spokesperson for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, claimed that the Labour Party's presidential candidate in the 2023 Presidential Election, Peter Obi, is planning to leave the party and join El-Rufai in the SDP.

Bwala, who made this allegation on his X handle, stated that Obi's potential departure from the Labour Party is due to the current crisis within the party, with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) threatening to take control.

Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State in the Southeast region, joined the Labour Party in May 2023 ahead of the 2023 general elections following his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Bwala, a member of the PDP who has declared support for President Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), also mentioned that there was a court judgment stating that the Nigeria Labour Congress owns the Labour Party, and the NLC is now prepared to assume ownership of the party.

As political dynamics continue to unfold, it will be interesting to see how these developments shape the future of Nigerian politics.
