The PDP faction is restrategising for the battles ahead.
The group of seven governors currently engaged in political face-off with President Goodluck Jonathan will today meet with the leadership of their faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
A source close to one of the governors told PREMIUM TIMES the meeting, expected to have in attendance all members of the National Working Committee, NWC of the faction, led by Abubakar Kawu Baraje, will take place at the Kano state Governors lodge in Asokoro. The meeting is expected to start by 8pm.
The source, who asked not to be named because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, said the governors and the faction’s executives would review the outcome of Sunday’s meeting between the ‘rebel’ governors and the president.
The meeting, our source said, will also consider strategies for strengthening the faction in the light of last week’s pronouncement by Justice Elvis Chukwu of an Abuja High Court regarding the status of the faction.
The faction, we further learnt, will also discuss the closure of its national and states secretariats by the police.
Also to be discussed is last week’s resignation of the National Treasurer of the faction, Tanko Gwamna, who subsequently pledged his allegiance to the BamangaTukur-led faction of the party.
The faction’s topshots will also work out modalities for identifying moles within its rank, our source said.
“The leadership of the faction wants to ensure that important information are not leaked to our opponents,” he said said.
