The agenda of the meeting is believed to be connected with the plan to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu from office.

Oshiomhole had on Friday vowed that the party will work for his impeachment “in accordance with the law”.

An impeccable source close to a PDP Senator told our correspondent that the meeting was called by the Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan (APC – Yobe).

He said: “Senator Lawan has called for a meeting of all APC senators again.

“The meeting will hold at Oshiomhole’s office on Aso Drive at 8pm on Monday.

“The agenda is the the same – sack of the SP and DSP”.

Igbere TV  recalls that the Aso Drive location was where the APC lawmakers converged hours after last Tuesday’s siege to the National Assembly.

Meanwhile, 49 senators of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have written to Saraki to inform him of their vote of confidence in his leadership of the Senate.

Saraki received the letter of support at the weekend.

A source said: “The PDP Senators expressed their support for him and Ekweremadu. They also condemned the invasion of the legislature by law enforcement agencies.”
