South-South Govs, Senators to Meet in Asaba over Jonathan’s 2015 Ambition

President Goodluck Jonathan

South-South Senators are set to converge in Asaba, the capital of Delta State, to discuss President Jonathan’s 2015 ambition which has generated a lot of reactions recently.
The meeting scheduled to hold in Asaba would be attended also by Governors of the South-South states.According to a source in the Delta State government house who spoke with LEGISREPORTS, the meeting between Governors and Senators of the South-South states is intended to be a platform where matters confronting the advancement of the Niger Delta region would be discussed.

The meeting it was also gathered is strategically meant to be a rallying point to grow support for President Jonathan’s 2015 ambition which is presently generating a lot of tension in the country between the Niger Delta region and core Northern states.
The source said: “the south-south region is tired of the problems of insecurity going on in the north. These problems are coming because Jonathan is in power and there are people who want him out.
“The south-south now has got to appoint where its leaders need to sit down and talk and make decisions as one united front and entity. This is the reason for the meeting that will hold in Asaba between Senators and Governors from the region”.
LEGISREPORTS recall that only this week, there was bad blood and feudal exchanges over statements attributed to Mujaheed Asari-Dokubo and Kingsley Kuku who said hell would be let loose if Jonathan was not returned in 2015 as the country’s President.
There were calls made by the House of Reps who want the duo arrested for the statements made.
This has however been resisted by youths from the Niger Delta and militants alike who threatened a showdown with the lower chamber should the duo be arrested.
