PDP Governors Meet Over Wike, ‘Packaging’ Dankwambo For Presidency by ManirBK: 10:21am On Mar 06, 2018
PDP govs meet over Wike, ‘packaging’ Dankwambo for presidency

Some PDP governors between Sunday night and early yesterday held a closed door meeting at the Government House in Gombe, where they reportedly discussed “the excessive powers” being wielded by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State with a view to checkmating him.

Sources said the meeting which had some PDP governors and representatives of others in attendance, also witnessed the presence of some members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.


It was gathered that besides discussing how to reclaim the party, the PDP leaders also discussed the probability of fielding Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo as their presidential candidate, next year.
Wike or his representative, as well as the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, were conspicuously absent at the meeting, with sources saying the duo deliberately absconded because they were “the main subjects of discussion.”

Wike was widely reported to have worked for the emergence of Secondus as PDP national chairman, and since the December 2017 convention, he (Wike) had remained “very powerful in the PDP.” Two party stalwarts, professors Jerry Gana and Tunde Adeniran at the weekend defected to the Social Democratic Party (SDP); citing Wike’s alleged overbearing influence as motivation for their departure.

At the end of yesterday’s meeting in Gombe, the PDP leaders only told journalists that they were not happy with President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged laxity in the fight against the Boko Haram insurgents and the poor state of the economy.

Governors present at the meeting included Emmanuel Udom (Akwa Ibom), Benedict Ayade (Cross River), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Ayodele Fayose (Ekiti), Ifeanyi Okowa (Delta), Darius Ishaku (Taraba), Ibrahim Dankwambo (Gombe), and Rear Admiral John Jonah who represented Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State.

The National Secretary of the party, Umar Tsauri and the Deputy National Chairman (South), Elder Yomi Akinwumi were some of the NWC members that attended the meeting.

The PDP had zoned its presidential ticket to the North and at present, it had only two serving governors from the region, Dankwambo who was serving his second term and his counterpart in Taraba, Ishaku who was about three years into his first term.

“The governors are actually looking inwards,” a source said. “They want one of their own as possible presidential candidate that would challenge President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.

Another source conversant with the internal intrigues of the party confided that soon after the convention, Governor Wike had been boasting that he handpicked the executives of the party and would always have his way. “He is the one who prompted serious party leaders to leave recently,” he said.

Addressing newsmen after the meeting, Fayose who is the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, said the abduction of 110 girls at a school in Dapchi, Yobe State, confirmed the ruling APC’s “nonchalant attitude in the fight against insurgency in the North East.”
The PDP governors also alleged that President Buhari’s administration had failed to fulfil any of the campaign promises made to Nigerians before the 2015 election.

Though I like Dankwambo, the time is not right for him to contest. It's either Atiku, Lamido, Kwankwaso or even Tambuwal.

Dankwambo is a good presidential material but he can't defeat buhari ..

Atiku or Lamido is the only one who can give buhari a scare and other things being equal trump him out of Aso Rock.

Others things include
Rigging
Electoral violence
Threats and other vices attributed to buhari.

Notwithstanding buhari will be disgraced come 2019

Hmmmmmm

Our President, see your life, see those you bailed out out of love

This is the reason never to be benevolent as a politician or political leader in Nigerian. When you see politicians of the opposing party in distress, please help bury him because if you help in his rescue, ingratitude, betrayal will be your lot

PDP just fooling itself. How many factions are there now. Undoubtedly, Wike is still the King-maker. Until he is heard from, no meeting has taking place.

January 1, 2014.
Father Mbaka prophecy that Buhari Will be the next president of Nigeria, that he should try one more time.

APC quickly too that prophecy seriously to a point where even the people that never liked him and had said bad things about him publicly, example El rufia , ,Rochas and Fashola. To cut long story short, the next year Buhari won and was dinning with Mbaka in Aso Rock, all the Northerners were happy with him.

January 1, 2018.
Same Father Mbaka prophecy that Buhari shouldn't contest or he will be humiliated, that some people around him are decieving him( El rufia, Yaya Bello and Co)
He went ahead to say that there's this governor in Gombe state that the governor will be the next president of Nigeria. In my mind I was like Mbaka don come again, only for me to Google about the governor who I've never heard about before is a PDP governor in North East of all places.wonders!!

Now Northern elders started abusing Mbaka to mind his business otherwise they will deal with him.
Mbaka lastly stated that whichever party that owns the governor should bring him out to Nigerians. So for people to still be calling Atiku, Kwankwaso, or Jerry Gana must be out of their minds.

If you think PDP will want to gamble such free exam expo.

Mbaka supported his prophecy by saying, God sent his prophet to tell Saul that he will be the next leader but Saul started misbehaving and God sent the same prophet to Saul that he won't be the next leader that David will be the next leader, and Saul became violent but last last David became the leader after Saul. So you have it.

So don't be surprised by the happenings of Today cos God is the one leading Dankwambo to Aso Rock, it doesn't matter what the devils and satans do in Aso Rock, they're going back to hell that they came out from.
Me, I've stopped arguing with APC members, since they have no respect for God in heaven.
