Bamanga Tukur Battles to Retain Job, Begs Atiku for Help
But the same Atiku, OluFamous.Com observed, was sidelined by the PDP Chairman who even refused to add his name in the list of PDP delegates.
“The chairman is truly embattled. When he got the wind of the plan to remove him as the national chairman of the party, he invited Atiku to his house for consultation. The meeting was aimed at saving his job.
“We don’t know what the outcome of the meeting was, but as soon as the chairman came out of the meeting, he moved to the Presidential Villa to confer with the President.”
Anyway, Tukur sent an SOS message to Atiku and the man obliged him a closed door meeting at his Wuse 2 residence in Abuja very late on Saturday. The meeting reportedly started at about 7pm and Atiku was seen leaving the PDP Chairman’s residence at about 8.30pm.
Both the PDP chairman and the ex-VP are from the same Adamawa State.
An aide to Atiku confirmed the meeting of the two on Sunday. “They (Atiku and Tukur) met last night (Saturday),” the aide said.
Punch learnt that the PDP chairman asked for Atiku’s help in pacifying his opponents to allow him retain his office. Immediately after the meeting with Atiku, Tukur also rushed to the Presidential Villa for a meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan.
Tukur was said to have been astonished when he got the directive that he should convey an emergency meeting of the National Working Committee of the party on Monday (today), which in turn would fix the meeting of the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party for Thursday.
The NEC meeting is expected remove him (Tukur) from office.
