he Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) appears to have finally dumped Acting President Goodluck Jonathan, with its resolve yesterday, that the north will be allowed to complete its tenure of eight years.
Addressing reporters after a meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party with the 22 PDP governors, National Chairman of the party, Prince Vincent Ogbulafor, said the presidency was in the south for eight years and it is expected that the north should be allowed to also complete its eight years.
He said: “As you know, the south has just completed its eight years. So we agreed that the north must be allowed to complete its eight years too.”
Many analysts had argued that the meeting was held to avert the wrath of Save Nigeria Group (SNG) which had warned that it would mobilize Nigerians if the health status of President Umaru Yar’Adua was not made public.
However, Ogbulafor said the major issue discussed was the zoning formula of the party.
On why Acting President Jonathan has not been allowed access to President Yar’Adua, Prince Ogbulafor said the President was still resting and should be given time to recuperate.
“The Acting President is not an ambitious man and since the President has just return, he will need time to rest and I am sure that very soon he will see him.
“I have not seen the President; as you know he has just returned and must be allowed to rest. We discussed national issues, and the zoning policy of our party.”
Meanwhile, 36 governors held their regular meeting yesterday at the Kwara State Governor’s lodge on Jose Martins Crescent of Asokoro and came out without a communiqué.
After the meeting, journalists were expecting briefing from the meeting, but the Oyo State Governor, Chief Alao Akala who came out seconds after Governor of Borno State shouted “no communiqué, no communiqué.”
But Chairman of the Governors Forum and Governor of Kwara State, Bukola Saraki, said the governors will brief the press after meeting with the Acting President at the Villa.
After the meeting however, the governors said they merely went to pay homage to Jonathan and to assure him of their support and loyalty.

    Who is deceiving who???

  2. Strange things cannot stop happening in that British failed project called Nigeria… How can a party chairman be party of governors forum meeting, when the other parties chairmen was not in the same meeting. Ogbulafor is one of the biggest idiot in this whole mess…

  3. Whatever gives those PDPD idiots such confidence that people will vote them is all in their sure plot of their evil selection rather than ELECTION!
    It is good now that they have told the whole world what kind of frauds the PDP gangsters are. For the criminals that have systematically looted the public fund. Where on this earth the a democracy is practiced by disenfranchising and denying the people and maybe a candidate from standing for election or the electorate to have a say in who governs them.
    Jonathan have now a chance to work and execute all them evil cabal starting from Ogbulafor, Anenih, ect.. and free the imporished people from their evil clown…
