Series of meeting have been held between the leadership of the PDP and it members in the National Assembly to streamline the expected defection of some APC federal lawmakers.

PDP said that from the meeting, there was plot to sneak in 30,000 illegal polling units in some remote areas and through which they planned to allocate votes to the APC.
