Younger elements within the camps of the four Presidential aspirants who participated in the search for Northern consensus president under the aegis of the Alhaji Adamu Ciroma-led Northern Political Leaders Forum (NPLF) have flagged off brain storming sessions aimed at tackling the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan on the spate of bomb blasts rocking the country.
Sources close to some of the meetings held by some NPLF members last week confirmed that the group has concluded arrangements to demand the resignation of President Goodluck Jonathan from office on account of his failure to arrest the series of bomb blasts rocking the country.
It was gathered in Abuja that participants at a June 16 meeting, featuring mainly younger elements of the presidential campaign organizations involved in the Northern consensus option had concluded plans to tackle the President and demand his resignation from office.
It was learnt that a grand design to facilitate the campaign is being put together.
It was learnt that the meeting of June 16 described the spate of bomb blasts across the country as something that has shown that President Goodluck Jonathan lacks the required capacity to lead the country and that an agreement was reached that the group makes an open statement to demand the President's resignation.
Meanwhile, another meeting of the Northern presidential hopefuls last Thursday nearly ended in fisticuffs as open disagreements broke out between loyalists of General Ibrahim Babangida and those of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar over allegations of underhand dealings in the emergence of Atiku as the Northern consensus candidate ahead of the primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in January.
