The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC), the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and 31 others.
The agreement was signed at the Musa Yar’Adua centre in Abuja on Monday, July 9.
Buba Galadima led members of the R-APC to the event.
Also at the event were deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu, former vice president Atiku Abubakar, Senator Dino Melaye, and Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom.
NAIJ.com had reported that the R-APC left the All Progressives Congress (APC) claiming its members have been badly treated in the party.

In reaction, the APC filed a four-count charge against members of the newly formed Reformed- APC.
The national legal adviser of the APC, Babatunde Ogala, denounced the formation of the factional APC led by Buba Galadima.
In a statement released over the weekend, Ogala said the action of members of the R-APC is griveous to law and can be linked to a coup.
