A source, whose political associate attended the gathering, told Sahara Reporters that the meeting was held shortly after Jonathan visited President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja last Thursday.
The media outfit also reported earlier that Jonathan had a meeting with President Buhari at the Aso Rock villa, despite the plots by some All Progressives Congress (APC) governors to allow Jonathan to return to power so that the southern region could only stay one term in office.
As gathered, Jonathan’s political associate, Dikivie Ikiogha, formed a South-South 2023 Presidency group and had held consultative meetings with stakeholders.
Though the activities of the group declined due to a lack of funding, a source told newsmen that they would soon resume their campaigns.
The source added that two governors from the North-West region were championing the plot. He said, “The coordinators of the group plotting for Jonathan to return to Aso Rock in 2023 met recently with Jonathan at his wife’s Aridolf Hotels and Spars.
“The chairman of the group, Chief Dikivie Ikiogha, and other South-South coordinators were present at the meeting. Jonathan indicated an interest in their campaign and asked them to return to their different states to continue with their campaign.
“This plot has been kept active by two governors from the North-West, who are plotting for a strong APC Northern governor to become Jonathan’s running mate.
“There is also a plan to reconcile Jonathan with a South-South minister.”
