Presidency Activates EFCC, ICPC to Blackmail Breakaway Governors…Releases Fund for False Reports
While efforts are being made, especially with a scheduled meeting for Tuesday between President Goodluck Jonathan and some aggrieved PDP governors, aimed at reconciling the differences that led to their walk out of its convention on Saturday and subsequent formation of a faction of the party is ongoing, indications have emerged that Presidency has perfected plans to blackmail the governors involved in the formation of the faction.
The presidency plans to sponsor reports that will come out in some national papers tomorrow giving the impression that Kano state governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso and the other six governors in the breakaway faction of the party are demanding for protection from the nation’s dormant anti-graft agencies, the EFCC and ICPC as the only condition for peace in the party.
A reliable source in the meeting where the plan was hatched in Abuja today said already a whooping sum of $250,000 cash has been given to the political editor of a south west based newspaper to help spread the report to other papers. The report, it was learnt was to lower the public perception of the governors in the new PDP and also prepare the ground for the anti-graft agencies to go after the governors.
“Part of the plan is to say that Governors Kwankwaso of Kano, Ahmed of Kwara who spoke at the meeting with the president on Sunday night sought for protection from the EFCC and ICPC for themselves and others in their camp before they can drop their agitation. We were also told to tell the media in the cooked report that harassment of Lamido’s son by the EFCC is part of the governors’ grouse but we all know that that matter had been settled in court”, the reliable source who is not happy with the blackmail agenda told an online media platform in Abuja today.
