Naija News had reported earlier that former President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday met with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Reconciliation and Strategy Committee led by former Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki.
Other members of the committee include one-time Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim, and ex-governor of Cross River State Liyel Imoke as members.
Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Saraki said the committee sought Jonathan’s counsel on how to go about strengthening the party, by reconciling aggrieved members.
He said: “Jonathan gave us his views and we are very happy. He reassured all of us of his commitment to the PDP and he told us that he is still ready to offer his time, experience and resources to strengthen the party.
“That is very strong and important for us. Of course, you know there are funny issues going on but we are leaving this place very happy.
“Jonathan is also ready to work with the reconciliation committee to play his own part. That is a great step for the party.”
The former Kwara governor also dismissed reports that Jonathan was plotting to join the All Progressives Congress (APC), adding that the former Bayelsa governor remains a PDP man.
Saraki disturbing Jonathan to defect to forget the thoughts.
