REVEALED: Jonathan Begs Amaechi To Support Him For 2015
President Goodluck Jonathan’s quest to remain in office beyond 2015 is set to wear an ethnic coloration and it seems his main headache is Governor Rotimi Amaechi who is part of the G-7 governors who have already started meeting with the APC leadership on how to join the leading opposition party.
OluFamous.Com gathered that President Jonathan is now preaching peace with Amaechi from all angles and he also assured Amaechi that he will no longer allow anyone to undermine his authority as a governor.
Below is what a source close to Amaechi said about the secret meeting:
“The discussion started right from the Port Harcourt Airport when the trio boarded the chopper and continued at Okrika, but was brief. You know that it was a secret meeting and no person was allowed to join the three of them. But the discussion, as I later learnt, was on how to bring reconciliation to the PDP.
“We understand that both the president and Dickson persuaded Amaechi not to succumb to the pressure from the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to dump the PDP and join the opposition.”
The PDP will become an opposition party if Amaechi and the G-7 governors eventually join the APC as they will be having about 20 governors, while the PDP will be left with just about 15 governors.
