All might not be well yet with the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), despite the nationwide party reconciliation tour recently embarked upon by its National Chairman, Dr. Bamanga Tukur.

This is as Senate President, David Mark; his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu; Speaker, House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal and his deputy, Emeka Ihedioha, and at least twenty-one governors under the PDP shunned an event put together by Tukur to celebrate his first anniversary in office. The occasion, which took place at the International Conference Centre (ICC) Abuja was also meant to be the grand rally to round off the national reconciliation tour just concluded by the Tukur.

Meanwhile, besides the absence of President Goodluck Jonathan who was represented by Vice President Namadi Sambo, only two governors – Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom who is also the chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum and Idris Wada of Kogi State attended the event out of 23 state governors.

The chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), Chief Tony Anenih was also conspicuously absent. However, a number of ministers and top members of the party graced the occasion.
