President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday met behind closed-doors with six members of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly.The meeting was believed to be the President’s way of intervening in the impeachment process that the lawmakers had instituted against the state Governor, Tanko Al-Makura.
Al-Makura had met with the President over the weekend in his bid to stop his removal from office. The members of the assembly who met with Jonathan on Thursday were led by their Speaker, Musa Muhammed.
The Deputy National Chairman, South, of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, also joined in the meeting. The National Chairman, Adamu Muazu, is currently on lesser Hajj in Saudi Arabia.
Muhammed, however, told State House correspondents at the end of the parley that the meeting was a private one.
