VP, PDP leaders in secret talks

The national leadership of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday met behind closed doors with Vice-President Goodluck Jonathan, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, over undisclosed issues.

Details of the meeting could not be ascertained as at press time as none of those who attended refused to speak to the press.

The composition of the team that visited Jonathan gave strong indications that issues discussed at the meeting might not be unconnected with the state of health of President Umaru Yar’Adua and the raging debate over the handing over of power to Jonathan.

Those at the meeting were Senate President David Mark, Mr. Dimeji Bankole, Speaker, House of Representatives; Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Deputy Senate President; Alhaji Usman Nafada, Deputy Speaker; Dr. Bukola Saraki, Governor of Kwara State and Alhaji Yayale Ahmed, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF; Mr. Mike Aondoakaa, Attorney-General and Minister of Justice and Prince Vincent Ogbulafor, Chairman of PDP.
