Jonathan’s Peace Talk with Governors End in Deadlock As Controversy Sets In
A meeting convened by President Goodluck Jonathan to find lasting solution to the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP with the aim of bringing back the five governors who recently defected to the All Progressive Congress, APC has ended in a deadlock as controversy sets in.
President Jonathan had presided over the meeting which had in attendance the Vice President, Namadi Sambo; seventeen governors including three of the seven G7 governors, chairman of the board of Trustees of the PDP, Tony Anenih, but stepped out about one hour to its end due to what a source said is the inability of the parties t reach a conclusion.
Against the backdrop of the outcome of the meeting, Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State, who reportedly attended the meeting together with his Kano counterpart Rabiu Kwankwaso, said the meeting was at the instance of the president to find lasting solution to the lingering crisis in the PDP.
He told the journalists that he went to the meeting in order to inform the President of their defection to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
But Governor Godswill Akpabio however contradicted the claim by wamako saying no such issue was discussed at the meeting.
Akpabio, who is the chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, however said Wamakko was at liberty to leave the party as thousands of the party members in Sokoto State will remain in the party.
