21 PDP Governors Boycott Reconciliation Meeting In Abuja by Clerverly: 12:15am On Mar 25, 2013
21 PDP Governors Boycott Party’s Grand Reconciliation Gathering

Twenty-one governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today boycotted what was billed as a grand reconciliation to bring together disaffected members of the party. In addition, the Senate President, Speaker and several prominent members of the party failed to turn up, making the event “a woeful failure” in the words of one of the party’s prominent members.

The planned reconciliation took place at the International Conference Center in Abuja. It was also planned to celebrate the first anniversary of the party's National Working Committee headed by Mr. Bamanga Tukur.

The event started at 3 p.m. with only a single governor, Idris Wada of Kogi, in attendance. Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom, the embattled chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, later arrived late. Speaking at the event, Mr. Akpabio said he wished to debunk newspaper reports that eight PDP governors were planning to leave the party to join the newly formed coalition of opposition parties.

Several PDP members in attendance at the event told a correspondent of SaharaReporters that they were shocked that the reconciliation failed to attract more than two of the party’s governors. Several of the governors sent their deputies to represent them, underscoring that the event was low on their priority list. SaharaReporters could not immediately ascertain whether Senate President David Mark and House Speaker Tambuwal sent any representatives.

The event was chaired by Vice President Namadi Sambo.

A little drama ensued at the venue when the Deputy Governor of Niger State was introduced as acting governor.

A party member told our correspondent that he was unable to say why President Goodluck Jonathan failed to attend the event which ended at 6 p.m. (Nigerian time).

Cheap gossip. First, it was an anniversary meeting and not reconciliation meeting.
What do you need a reconciliatory meeting for'? Are the Governors on a war path with each other?
The last time I checked, it was a pro or anti Jonathan issue not between Govs. The lines are clearly drawn. 8 Govs are not happy with Jonathan but to say they want to leave would amount to stretching political masturbations and imaginations to its elastic limits.

The hand writing is clear that PDP will win 2015 elections massively.
Anybody still dreaming about a PDP exit in 2015 is a clown.

Just last week, elections were held in FCT and PDP cleared all five councils and left one for ANPP.
That victory was significant in Many respects. It was a reasonably free and fair election.
It also came at the heels of so much noise by the opposition about APC.
FCT is also a centre of unity representing every ethnic group.
For PDP to have swept the polls in metropolitan areas shows how much strength they have n the country.

I just don't trust these PDP guys, they will be 'forming' internal rancour and bickering, maybe just to make the opposing feel relaxed, and when election is around the corner they will mysteriously settle all their differences and become the best of buddies winning the opposition with an embarrassing margin in the elections.
