Jonathan's Proposed Meeting With 'New PDP' Leaders Postponed

​The proposed meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan and leaders of the New People's Democratic Party, PDP, has been postponed due to some of the Governor's Hajj trip to Mecca.  

Alh. Abubakar Kawu Baraje, the National Chairman of PDP was said to have called from Saudi Arabia around 9pm on Sunday and directed that the Governors and stakeholders of party that includes Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, Alh. Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, Alh. Kwankwaso of Kano State who are yet to travel to Mecca should meet with President Jonathan by 9am on Monday to seek permission for the postponement.

The meeting is scheduled to hold at Aso Rock Villa, Abuja. The postponed gathering is expected to be fixed to a more convenient date when all the party's leaders would have returned from their trip to Mecca.

A source in the party squealed to Global Village Extra that "shifting the meeting to morning period is to allow the mentioned Governors apart from Gov Amaechi to travel to Mecca later on Monday for the Haji operation."

According to the National Chairman, Alh. Kawu Baraje, "this step is bore out of the plea by President Jonathan and respect we have for his office."
