Barely 24 hours after Abusidiqu.com brought you a report that the presidency in a desperate move to hoodwink the breakaway governors from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP activated the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC as well as the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC to blackmail the governors into accepting to return to the Jonathan led PDP, another news item prepared and handed out to some journalists today to further paint the aggrieved governors as corrupt elements seeking for protection from the anti-graft agencies, EFCC and ICPC has been uncovered.

The whole idea behind the fake media report is to pitch them against the public and part members loyal to them with the ultimate aim of forcing them to abandon the idea of continuing with the faction of the party they have formed and return to the Bamangu Tukur led PDP.
Read below the blackmail script obtained by one of our reporters in Abuja today:
“It emerged on Tuesday that the aggrieved governors of the PDP decided to seek a postponement of the peace parley scheduled for Tuesday as a result of President Goodluck Jonathan’s rejection of the suggestion that the government should put an immediate stop to probe of state governments’ accounts by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“Sources in the party confirmed that the aggrieved governors, many of whom attended the Sunday night meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja had expressed disappointment with the way President Jonathan waved aside the request that he should put an end to the probe of governors by the EFCC.
“Kano state governor, Rabiu Kwakwanso, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues at the Sunday meeting said that the son of Jigawa state governor Sule Lamido was being harassed by the EFCC and that a number of state governors were under EFCC probe.
“He asked the President to intervene and ensure that the PDP governors were protected. His Kwara state counterpart, Abdufattah Ahmed also complained that he and his predecessor have been victims of EFCC probe for years now and that they felt that as PDP governors, they should be protected.
“But it was gathered that the President’s refusal to give a commitment on the EFCC angle irked the governpors who later got back to the leadership of the party that they needed further consultations before they could attend the peace parley.”
