jonathan-and-g7-pdp-governors-360x225In what might be a last spirited attempt at resolving once and for all the crisis that has seen the self-acclaimed largest party in Africa – Peoples Democratic Party – factionalized and at the threat of losing some of its members to the opposition, President Goodluck Jonathan is set to meet with the group of seven (G7) aggrieved governors of the party next Sunday.

The meeting according to a letter dated November 11 and signed by the President’s Chief of Staff, Mike Oghiodomhe, would hold by 9 p.m. at the First Lady’s conference room, the State House, Presidential Villa.

The governors billed to attend the latest round of peace talks are Rabiu Kwankwanso (Kano); Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Chibuike Amaechi (Rivers), Sule Lamido (Jigawa), Aliyu Babangida (Niger); Abdulfatai Ahmed (Kwara); and Murtala Nyako (Adamawa).

Before now, the President had met with the group twice, but they were not able to arrive at an amicable resolution to their differences.
