Jonathan supposedly visited Atiku on Friday, March 13, to convince him to be part of an Interim National Government.
President Goodluck Jonathan has reportedly held a secret meeting with Vice President, Abubakar Atiku at the latter’s home in Abuja.
Jonathan supposedly visited Atiku on Friday, March 13, to convince him to be part of an Interim National Government (ING), according to Sahara Reporters.
The meeting was said to have held in Atiku’s living room and continued into the early hours of the next day.
When reached by Sahara Reporters however, the former VP denied that Jonathan had discussed the issue of the interim government saying instead that the President attempted to persuade him to rejoin the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Atiku however stated that he completely refused Jonathan’s invitation.
The former VP also reportedly told Sahara Reporters that the President didn’t seem eager to allow the general elections hold on March 28 as scheduled.
Atiku also maintained that he had no interest in being part of an Interim National Government.
APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu had also earlier alleged that President Jonathan offered him a position in the proposed ING, a claim which former Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi says he can provide evidence to prove.
