PDP Crisis: Jonathan Must Make One Of Us His Vice President In 2015 For Peace To Reign – G7 Governors
A new twist has been introduced to the crises currently rocking the Peoples Democratic (PDP), as the group of seven governors who are currently negotiating with other party stakeholders as well as the presidency to find a way out of the crisis has demanded for the seat of Vice President Namadi Sambo if President Goodluck Jonathan insists on running for the 2015 election.
The Seven Governors – Sule Lamido (Jigawa), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (Kano), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Aliyu Wamako (Sokoto), Babangida Aliyu (Niger) and Abdulfattah Ahmed (Kwara) led by former vice President Atiku Abubakar walked out of the Party’s convention at the Eagle square to form a faction of the party called ‘New’ PDP.
The Governors subsequently entered into negotiations with the ruling Party and tabled some conditions that must be fulfilled if they are to return to the party.
The high point of the governor’s conditions is that President Goodluck Jonathan must drop his ambition of contesting the 2015 election based on an earlier agreement reached with them. Others are that the current chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamaga Tukur must be removed and replaced with a new person and that fresh convention of the party that must be free of intimidation be held. They also added that Governor Rotimi Amaechi must be recognized as the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum and the suspension placed on him by the party lifted.
While the governors may have soft pedaled on their demand that President Jonathan drops his 2015 ambition, they are now asking that the president should make one of them his vice presidential candidate if he insists on running for the 2015 election.
The rebel group said that only recipe for peace and the only reason that they will be supporting President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term bid the President to replace Vice-President Namadi Sambo with one of them.
