The meeting of the governors elected under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) called to resolve its raging leadership crisis has apparently hit a stalemate forcing the state chief executives to reconvene today (Tuesday).
The meeting was summoned to determine whether or not the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, should be removed from office as being demanded by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike-led pressure group in the party.
But after several hours of deliberation during which Secondus was later invited ostensibly to state his case, the meeting was adjourned till Tuesday to enable it to take a definite stand.
Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum (PDP-GF) and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, told waiting reporters that the meeting deliberated on current issues concerning the party but will reconvene Tuesday.
He assured that the governors are working to ensure that all disagreements are resolved.
The Sokoto Governor said: “We discussed extensively on matters of the moment concerning our party and we have collectively resolved to continue to work together in unity. This meeting will continue today (Tuesday) with other stakeholders.Very soon, Nigerians and indeed, all of you will hear our resolution but we are working towards resolving all issues, as a family. By the grace of God, we are going to achieve that.”
At the meeting were Governors Oluseyi Makinde (Oyo), Wike (Rivers), Ifeanyi Okowa (Delta), Godwin Obaseki (Edo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia).
