Again, the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) led by the national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, have held a closed door meeting with former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida at his hilltop home in Minna.
Secondus had visited IBB barely three months after he assumed the chairmanship position of PDP with some of his NWC members. LEADERSHIP gathered that yesterday’s meeting was to intimate the former Nigerian leader on efforts made so far to reconcile the members.
Sources disclosed that the chairman of Niger State PDP, Tanko Beji, unlike in the previous meeting was inside with the NWC members for the closed-door session.
A source at the meeting hinted that the national chairman of the party also briefed General Babangida on the plans to ensure the party’s victory in the forthcoming Osun and Ekiti states governorship elections.
It was learnt that IBB expressed satisfaction with the reconciliatory efforts so far and commended the NWC for their efforts since getting into office and wished them well.
The source added that IBB was optimistic that the efforts being put into the management of the party could impact positively on the party’s chances in next year’s general elections and advised them to make sure they take decisions based on wide consultations.
The delegation was also at the residence of a former member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the party and former governor of Niger State, Late Engr. Abdulkhadir Abdullahi Kure, where the chairman assured the family that the party would always be with them.
