Rivers' crisis: PDP Governors summon emergency meeting

The Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Governors' Forum, has summoned an emergency meeting scheduled to hold in Abuja on Tuesday. 

It was gathered in Abuja, on Monday that the main item on the agenda is the ongoing political crisis in Rivers State . 

The meeting, is expected to take place at the Akwa Ibom State Governor's Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja, by 3pm.

A member of the PDPGF who pleaded anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press  said  the emergency session , “ is not unconnected with the crisis playing out in the Rivers State, in which the State Governor, Mr Similaye Fubara and his predecessor Barrister Nyeson Wike are at loggerheads.”

Even though Wike is the current Minister of Federal Capital Territory, FCT serving under an All Progressives Congress APC government, both he and his successor as Governor of Rivers State, are still members of the PDP. 

According to the PDP-GF member, further said, "This emergency meeting has become imperative because we can not afford to close our eyes while things are going wrong.

"As a Forum (PDP-GF), we must act fast to ensure that this crisis doesn't go out of hands as such will not be to the benefit of anybody.”

The source further disclosure that the forthcoming off cycle governorship elections in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States will also be discussed at the meeting.
