Jonathan is back, meets PDP topshots

Former president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan is back. He  has apparently ended his political hiatus to wade into the ongoing leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The former president was scheduled to meet with the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the opposition party in Abuja on Wednesday night.

Since losing power, Jonathan had refrained from associating openly with his party, after initially announcing that he would take a one year break from politics.

Nearly 14 months after his ouster from office, he had decided to meet with the “conscience of the party,” while the leadership crisis had led to emergence of two factions of the party.

It is not clear whether he had reached out to the national caretaker committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi or claimant to the office of the national chairman, Senator Ali Sheriff.

Meanwhile, the Sheriff-led faction of the PDP has urged the commission  to ignore a letter by the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee of the party, informing it of the proposed August 17 national convention.

This came as the Makarfi-led committee pleaded with the commission not to listen to Sheriff and his cohorts.
