President may meet the Governor of Rivers State soon

 Governor Rotimi Amaechi and President Goodluck Jonathan

The source, who is close to the President, told our correspondent that the President was asked to make peace with anyone capable of helping him to win the 2015 presidential election.

This, he said, was one of the decisions reached at the meeting between the PDP governors and the President.

“The President, at the meeting, was made to know that there is crisis in the party and that we need to work harder if we are dreaming of winning the 2015 elections,” the governor added.

Meanwhile, there were indications  that governors elected on the platform of the PDP aided the removal of the Commissioner of Police in charge of Rivers State, Mr. Joseph Mbu.

Investigations by our correspondent in Abuja showed that the governors at their meeting with Jonathan on Tuesday night, advised the President to give approval for the redeployment of the controversial CP.

The meeting was held at the Presidential Villa.

The governor said that it was difficult for them to convince the President to redeploy Mbu.

Asked why the CP was not posted to another state, he said none of the governors at the meeting agreed to accept him.

Besides, he said that “we felt that any state he (Mbu) is posted to will have the feeling that he is coming to wreck havoc.”

He said this could be the reason why the CP was redeployed to Abuja, which he said, was considered  to be a neutral ground.
