2019: Major Confusion As Ex-President Jonathan Conspires With The North, Declares Total War Against Governor Wike

2019: Major Confusion As Ex-President Jonathan Conspires With The North, Declares Total War Against  Governor Wike

Emerging report reveals that Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and the River State Governor, Nyesom Wike are at dagger’s drawn over Prince Uche Secondus’ bid to become the  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman.

It was learnt that Jonathan, is mobilising serious opposition against Secondus, a frontline chairmanship aspirant in the party who hails from the Ijaw-speaking part of Rivers State.
The former President is said to be determined to shut down the ambition of Secondus, who enjoys the support of Wike and other South-South governors.
The report alleges that Wike is a key supporter of Secondus, a former Acting Chairman of the PDP National Working Committee, NWC.
It was gathered that Jonathan’s moves against Secondus were borne out of his cold war with Wike and another South-South governor, following his belief that the duo frustrated an initial plot by his key loyalists to return him as PDP’s Presidential candidate in 2019.
A source said: “Jonathan has continued to blame the failure of the plan on Wike and the other South-South governor. He believes that the duo frustrated his ambition to return as the party’s presidential candidate.
“His next move is to stop any aspirant for the position of a national chairman who has links with Wike.
”He does not want Secondus, knowing that Wike is the one behind his ambition.
“Unknown to many people, Jonathan and Wike have fallen apart and Jonathan’s wife is no longer close to the governor of Rivers State.
“If Secondus is out of the way, Jonathan and his wife, Patience, will go for the structures of the PDP, especially in Bayelsa and Rivers states, to enable them to play key roles in the 2019 elections.”
It was gathered that Jonathan was aligning with the PDP elements in the north against Secondus.
The former President reportedly held various meetings with PDP stakeholders in the north, which has a significant number of the delegates for the convention, to extract a commitment from them that they would not cast their votes for Secondus.
The party source added: “Jonathan is serious with his anti-Secondus campaign in the north. The north has many of the delegates and presidential aspirants, and Jonathan is reaching out to all of them.
“While he is openly backing a former minister, Nenadi Usman, to become the national secretary of the PDP, Jonathan wants any chairmanship aspirant other than Secondus to emerge victorious at the party’s national convention.
“His actions are creating divisions in the party ahead of the convention. The Ijaw stakeholders in the party and the South-South are not happy with the former President for not supporting their own.
“But like he failed in his previous plots, he will definitely fail again, because Secondus is unstoppable.”
A group, the South-South Coalition for Good Governance, on Saturday confirmed that Jonathan’s clandestine moves against Secondus was real, and condemned the actions of the former President.
The group, in a statement signed by its Co-ordinator, John Boma-Harrison, said theý grand plot was being hatched by Jonathan, using some of his northern allies.
The group said that the former president was mobilising northern delegates against the candidacy of Secondus, despite Secondus being a southerner and a proud son of the Niger Delta.
