ABUJA- FRESH facts have emerged from Sunday meeting President Goodluck Jonathan, Vice President Namadi Sambo and governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic party, PDP held that the National chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur will be dropped in March next year during the mid term convention.
Vanguard gathered that the governors since the election of Tukur along side other members of the National Working Committee, NWC have been calling for the sack of Bamanga Tukur against the backdrop that his manner of administration never rallied with the governors, just as the governors were said have again demanded for his removal.
At the Sunday night meeting, a source told Vanguard that the PDP governors loyal to President Goodluck Jonathan frowned at the attitude of the national chairman of the party which they noted has inflamed negative passion rather than calm frayed nerves as well as overheated the polity.
It was also gathered that a former deputy national chairman of the party and now a governor of Katsina State from North West, Ibrahim Shema; Isa Yuguda of Bauchi; Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa; Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta; Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom; Liyel Imoke of Cross River and Jonah Jang of plateau state who were at the meeting, were said to have told the President and Vice President Sambo that the move to ask Tukur to go at the special convention next year was the only panacea to lingering political quagmire in PDP. Gabriel Suswan of Benue state was absent as he was said to be out of the country.
