Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom met with Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan behind closed doors on Tuesday.
They convened at the former president’s mansion in Abuja with the goal of “strengthening the PDP’s familial relations.”
The two talked about the party’s future and the general election in 2023.
Though neither of them spoke to the press, Nathaniel Ikyur, Chief Press Secretary to Benue State Governor, informed reporters, “The two met behind closed doors for more than 40 minutes and chatted openly.”
“They only came out, smilingly with the ex-president exchanging courtesies with everyone on the governor’s entourage.
“They obviously discussed the Peoples Democratic Party and the future of Nigeria.”
Jonathan’s meeting with Ortom came as a surprise owing to speculations about the latter’s presidential ambition under the All Progressives Party.
However, Jonathan has not resigned his PDP membership as confirmed by many from the PDP and Jonathan’s aides.
