Ameachi’s Meeting With Lamido Worries Prez Jonathan …As President Keeps Jigawa Gov Under Close Watch

The closed-door  meeting between the Director General of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation and Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi and  Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State in Dutse, the state capital has become a great disturbance to the president and his team; this much can reveal.  .
The meeting, which was held at the Government House, came as a surprise to many, because Amaechi and Lamido, had once belonged to the then New PDP, but they later parted ways when Amaechi defected to APC, while Lamido remained in the PDP.

The two have since taken prominent roles in the 2015 presidential campaigns of the APC and PDP.
Lamido is the coordinator of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation for North-West zone.
It was gathered that the two governors started the closed-door meeting at the Presidential Lodge in Government House, Dutse at about and ended at 11:30 am.
Lamido emerged after the meeting and drove himself in a Peugeot 206 car without speaking to journalists and returned to his official residence.
Amaechi who drove himself in a black Toyota Land Cruiser jeep with few escorts to the government house also declined to speak to journalists.

Close watchers of the polity believe that the meeting is to woo the governor to work for General Buhari instead of President Jonathan. Why this has become a great worry to the presidency is because already, the party has penciled some of the governors down that is believed to be working for APC and Lamido’s name is very prominent on the list.  gathered further that the presidency has decided to tail every move of the governor who is pained for not getting the promised vice president slot.
Also in attendance at the meeting was APC chieftain in the state Alhaji Farouq Aliyu and the party candidate for Jigawa Central Senatorial District Sabo Nakudu.
It was not however clear what they discussed at the meeting, but we have it on good authourity that it is about the movement known as GMB..
