Chime, Ekweremadu in secret meeting
Fence-mending moves between two political stalwarts from Enugu State, Governor Sullivan Chime, and the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, have begun.
The duo whose relationship appears to have soared of late met behind closed door last week in Abuja to explore possibilities of working together ahead of the 2015 general election.
According to reports, the meeting was reportedly convened by the National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) South-east, Col Austin Akobundu (rtd).
The meeting was said to have taken place at the residence of the former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, in Abuja.
According to the reports, former Governor of the old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo; Chairman of the state chapter of the PDP, Vita Abba and a personal friend of the governor from his Udi Local Government Area, Chief Tony Eze were present at the meeting.
The two stalwarts freely expressed themselves on the reasons for the war of words between them in the media, with Ekweremadu saying that he had nothing against the governor.
It was further reported that both Chime and Ekweremadu were asked to go and sort out all issues concerning their individual ambitions and aspirations, but to ensure that whatever be their decision, it should not undermine the peace currently existing in the state and the zone at large.
