President Goodluck Jonathan Holds Top Secret Meetings In Lagos

This was one of the best kept secret of President Goodluck Jonathan as he gets prepared to declare his 2nd or 3rd term ambition (depending on what the law says about it) to run for the office of President in 2015.

Unknown to many Nigerians and journalists, President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday paid a top secret and surprise visit to Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital, where he held discreet meetings with some key groups and highly connected personalities at the State House in Marina.


The secret meetings lasted for about seven hours till Saturday night…
Security operatives at the Murtala Muhammed Internationa Airport, Lagos, told Punch that Jonathan arrived at the President Wing of the airport in company with his aides around 11am.

The President, who was dressed in black Niger Delta attire with a black hat, was conveyed from the airport with a chopper to Dodan Barracks, Ikoyi, from where he was driven in a convoy to State House, Marina.

It was gathered that Jonathan was on his way from Ivory Coast when he stopped by in Lagos.

At the State House, the President was said to have held series of separate meetings with different groups and from what a source said, some of those he met are the top billionaire businessmen.

Jonathan wanted to know if the top billionaires will support him in 2015 before he declares his ambition.

“I think the President may declare his 2015 ambition to seek re-election any time soon, going by the series of meetings that were held today,” an unconfirmed source close the meetings told Punch.

Jonathan was said to have departed for Abuja through the President Wing of the MMIA around 8:20pm.
