It was gathered that the duo met at the Emir’s palace where the funeral prayer was observed on the corpse and was to accompany the corpse to the cemetery when the Governor offered Shekarau a lift in his car and from there drove to the Mundubawa residence of the former governor.
In a video clip going viral, upon arrival, the duo highlighted from the car and made their way into the sitting room area where they had a closed-door meeting which lasted over 30 minutes.
Although, unconfirmed sources said the meeting could not be unconnected to the forthcoming governorship election in the state as this is the crucial matter that could bring the duo together at this material.
Recalled that Shekarau and Ganduje had parted ways from the All Progressive Congress, APC last year after the party Congress which saw the emergence of two factional party chairmen.
