The former vice president gave the hint while speaking to Journalists shortly after his meeting with leaders of the APC in his Abuja home.
He told reporters that the meeting was very fruitful and that he would consult with his political associates nationwide before joining the APC.
“We want to let you know that we had very fruitful discussions and you know I have always believed in a two-party structure.
