The atmosphere was so charged during the latest peace meeting that President Goodluck Jonathan was filled with rage after he learnt that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is supporting the Northern governors to take over power from him in 2015. Jonathan could not help but cry:
He cried out that Obasanjo was with him when he received a West African president recently and he did not suspect him of working against him.
“Obasanjo created the problem, he should go and solve it,” Mr. Jonathan was quoted as saying at the meeting he held with leading members of the new PDP as it became obvious to him that Obasanjo is supporting them and they want him [Jonathan] to step down in 2015.
Jonathan, who Gossipersonline gathered was close to physical tears as his eyes were very red, suddenly rose from his seat and stormed out of the meeting saying, "I am no longer interested in this meeting".
“We were shocked when the president walked out of the meeting in anger saying he had grown increasingly frustrated by Mr. Obasanjo’s destabilizing antics,” a source at the meeting said. “He pointedly accused the former president of being behind the crisis.”
As Jonathan was walking away, Chief Tony Anenih, who is PDP Board of Trustees chairman, went after him and begged him to calm down as anger will not help him in the matter on ground. He eventually returned but it was obvious to those present that Jonathan is ready for a fight.
EK Clark and Asari Dokubo have both advised Jonathan to fight Obasanjo, Atiku, Babangida, Amaechi and any other person working against his plan to contest the 2015 election
