This is according to reports indicating that ex-Information Minister Jerry Gana, ex-Education Minister Tunde Adeniran and ex-Niger Delta Minister Godsday Orubebe are in talks with the SDP prelude to their crossing over.

A marathon meeting reported to have lasted till the early hours of Friday ended with the parties involved signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at Ladi Kwali Hall in Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.

The other PDP members making the switch are a former Military Administrator of Katsina State, Sen. Joseph Akaagerger; a former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Peter Godsday Orubebe; Chief Mike Oghiadhome, who was a former Chief of Staff to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan; ex-Governor Saminu Turaki of Jigawa State; and ex-Minister of Defence, Dr. Olu Agunloye and a former Deputy Speaker of Ondo State House of Assembly, Hon.
