Members of the Progressives Governors Forum, who met in Abuja, late on Sunday, failed to reach an agreement on what to do about the proposal to ease out their colleagues holding party positions.
It was gathered in Abuja, on Monday that the meeting which was held at the Kebbi State Governors Lodge, Asokoro, was punctuated by words of caution by a governor from the North Central who urged his colleagues not to celebrate the Supreme Court judgment on the Ondo Governorship matter’s yet.
A source privy to the meeting who pleaded anonymity because he was not mandated to speak to the media on what has been discussed, said, “We only agreed to wait for the return of Mr. President before taking a final decision.”
It would be recalled that based on the legal advice of the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), the party went ahead with the ward congresses.
This was against an earlier advice by the party’s former national legal adviser, Muiz Banire (SAN) and the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) against doing so.
Meanwhile, security was on Monday beefed up around the party’s national secretariat following security reports that those opposed to the conduct of last Saturday’s ward congresses were planning to stage a protest.
Two police patrol vans with a dozen armed policemen were stationed along Blantyre Street where the party secretariat is located.
