The New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) that merged with the All Progressives Congress (APC) before the 2015 general elections said on Monday that it’s too early for the group to say if it would remain in APC.

Spokesperson of the group, Mr. Kawu Baraje, said this in Abuja while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a close-door meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

He said the group was looking forward to meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Members of the nPDP have written a letter to the party copying the President and the Vice President. So the party has invited us earlier on and now it is the turn of the Vice President, probably the next one will be the President,” he said.

Asked if they were satisfied with the discussion with the Vice President, Baraje said: “So far so good. We are looking forward to some of the promises. There will be other meetings because we have been put into subcommittees and then we will now identify specific and general problems and then we will proceed to see Mr. President. But it was a very good meeting.”

Members of the nPDP had on April 5 gave a 14-point demands and seven-days ultimatum to the All Progressive Congress to address what it termed as marginalisation of its members since the coming into office of the current administration.

The group said its members have not been fairly treated after helping to bring the APC to power.
