After a month’s lull in the peace process, President Goodluck Jonathan has invited the G-7 governors for resumption of talks on the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) crisis.

But one of the governors said the session might be the last, considering what he described as the ongoing hounding of their children, relations and staff by some security agencies.

According to a November 12 letter addressed to the leader of the G-7, Governor Babangida Aliyu, the session will hold on

Sunday in the First Lady’s Conference Room.

The letter, which was signed by the Chief of Staff to the President, Mike .A. Oghiadomhe, reads in part: “ I write to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated 6th October, 2013, addressed to His Excellency, Mr. President, wherein you requested for the resumption of the postponed discussion between Mr. President and the seven governors.

“I am to invite you and the other governors to the follow-up meeting scheduled to hold in the First Lady’s Conference Room, State House, Abuja on Sunday, 24th November, 2013 at 21.00 hours.

“Please convey the message to other governors and accept the assurances of my warm regards.”

One of the governors, who spoke in confidence, said: “This is likely to be our final meeting with the President. It is a make or break session in the light of recent developments.

“He has the last chance to make peace with the G-7 or else everyone will determine whether to remain in PDP or join another party.

“We do not see him conceding but we want to give Jonathan the benefit of the doubt. He has given enough signs that he does not want peace. Our meeting was disrupted and he has set anti-corruption agencies against our children and relations.

“What I know is that our demands remain sacrosanct. We are building consensus on the need to attend the meeting.”
