President Jonathan, Wife & Atiku Hold Secret Overnight Meeting With Fayose, Mimiko, Okupe, Plan Interim Government

Ex-VP and Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Atiku Abubakar, has revealed that President Goodluck Jonathan has begged him to return to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

He confirmed that President Jonathan paid him a secret visit on Friday night to hold a meeting that lasted till the early hours of Saturday.

Sources at the Presidency told SaharaReporters that Mr. Jonathan went to Mr. Atiku’s home with the aim of persuading him to lead a so-called interim government of national unity that the president has been covertly attempting to sell to numerous political figures in recent weeks.

One source said Mr. Jonathan and some hawkish members of his inner circle, including Petroleum Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke, First Lady Patience Jonathan, Governors Olusegun Mimiko and Ayo Fayose of Ondo and Ekiti respectively, as well as senior presidential aide Doyin Okupe, have decided that handing over power to Muhammadu Buhari “is out of the question.”

When SaharaReporters reached Mr. Atiku, he expressed surprise that the online news portal knew about his meeting with President Jonathan.

Mr. Atiku said he had retired to bed when he was woken up and told that President Jonathan had come to see him, adding that the president was already waiting in his living room.

After denying that he was asked to head an interim government, Atiku admitted that Mr. Jonathan tried to prevail on him to rejoin PDP.

He disclosed that he rejected the invitation outright.

According to Mr. Atiku, the president also discussed the ongoing war against Boko Haram insurgents, asking for support for Nigerian troops fighting in the area.

He said they also discussed the possibility of displaced Nigerians returning to the areas that have been recaptured from Boko Haram.

Asked whether he thought President Jonathan was interested in allowing elections to hold on 28 March, Atiku hesitated before stating that he would not wish to speculate, but he said the president’s body language did not reveal that he was interested in the polls that are scheduled to hold in two weeks.

The secret meeting between Mr. Jonathan and former VP Atiku has caused unease among some APC stalwarts. A few hours after the meeting, a faction of Mr. Atiku’s original political organization, the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM), announced their endorsement of President Jonathan.

In his telephone interview with SaharaReporters, Mr. Atiku disclosed that he was opposed to the formation of an interim government.

He stated that when former military dictator, Ibrahim Babangida, set up an interim national government in 1993, the dictator offered him a position in the government through the late General Shehu Yar’Adua (ret.).

He said he rejected the position, adding that it was eventually given to a Lagos politician Dapo Sarumi.

Asked further about the substance of his conversation with Mr. Jonathan, the former vice president said he advised the president to ensure that the elections were free and fair and devoid of the bloodshed that trailed the 2011 general elections.

    It is obvious that president Badluck Jonathan is every much aware of the fact that Nigerian people are overwhelmingly against him, his past records of failure and his reelection bid. This is the sole reason for the postponement of the original date of February 14,2015 for the presidential election. This criminal, corrupt, and unpatriotic president is fully ready to destroy the peace, unity and prosperity of our beloved nation due to his ungodly desperation to hang on to power against the will of majority of suffering Nigerian masses. He paid some corrupt Nigerian pastors billions of naira so that they can divide Nigeria along religious line, and ultimately deceive their worshippers to vote Jonathan for another four years of terror, blood bath, insecurity, inflation, shattered educational system, and incompetent. What this dumb president does not know is that pastors, kings, OPC militants, Ijaw militants, and political god fathers like Edwin Clark, Atiku, IBB does not control the outcome of any election, but Nigerian people do. The power of votes lies in the hands of those 180 millions great Nigerian people that have seen nothing but economic setbacks, inflation, corruption, insecurity, mismanagement, money laundering operations like never before seen, corruption and imcompentence during six years of Jonathan’s presidency. General Mohammad Buhari will surely win the March 28th, 2015 presidential election in a landslide victory because Nigerian voters are seek and tired of six years of Jonathan’s failures. However, president Jonathan will be doing himself and our young democracy so much favor and save himself international embarrassment if he peacefully handover power to the winner of the next presidential election. If not, he will end up worse than Sanni Abacha who died miraculously in office. Enough of election bribery and ruthless waste of our national funds by this do-nothing president. President Jonathan will be disgraced or killed by bloody military coup if he choice to force his way on Nigerians. This zoologist turned politician is Nigerian worst political mistake, highly disgraceful, low IQ and a shame of a nation called Nigeria. Nigerians deserve a better, passionate, competent, patriotic and honorable man like General Buhari to rescue our already sinking and declining nation from six years of Jonathan’s disaster.
