Akwa Ibom state governor, Godswill Akpabio has said that governors of the New PDP have no right to demand that President Goodluck Jonathan put an end to his second term ambition, describing it “as uncalled for”.

He said this while commenting on the reconciliation talks between the aggrieved members and the party’s leadership, including President Jonathan, which has been shifted to the 7th of October.

Alhtough, Mr Akpabio said that the issue has been settled and all the parties have come to the conclusion that the ambition is a personal decision of the president and that nobody has any right to stop him.

The aggrieved governors were said to have insisted that apart from the president dropping his second term ambition, there should be an unconditional lifting of the suspension on Rivers state governor, Chibuike Amaechi, as well as the sacking of the PDP chairman, Bamanga Tukur.
