Defected Kwankwaso, Wamakko storm PDP reconciliation meeting

Two of already defected Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who are now in the All Progressive Congress (APC) surprisingly appeared at the Sunday peace meeting called by President Goodluck Jonathan.

The governors include, Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State and Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State.

The defected governors who were at the premises of the First Lady Conference Hall, Presidential Villa at about 9pm, arrived the venue in the same car.

The two governors arrived the venue of the meeting when one of the aggrieved governors, Babangida Aliyu of Niger state had already taken his seat for almost one hour.

The Chairman, Board of Trustees of the PDP, Chief Tony Anenih, who also arrived earlier engaged the president in a private meeting before returning to the meeting’s venue.

As at 9.50pm, Jonathan and Sambo arrived the venue and took their seat for the meeting.

Some PDP governors who had earlier converged at the Akwa Ibom State Governors Lodge in Asokoro also stormed the meeting, as they were led by their Chairman, Godswill Akpabio. They include, governors of Abia, Kebbi, Kogi, Katsina, Bauchi, Plateau, Enugu, Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Ebonyi, Kaduna and Taraba States.

However, Sule Lamido of Jigawa State, another governor who is yet to declare for APC was conspicuously absent from the meeting.

The outcome of the meeting is yet known as deliberation was still ongoing when this report was been filed.
