Jonathan Begs Amaechi, Others Not To Join APC; Offers Them A Ceasefire Deal

President Goodluck Jonathan has realized that he cannot win the 2015 presidential election with just 10 PDP governors loyal to him and probably One governor from APGA and Labour Party.
  Consequently, President Jonathan has pleaded with Governor Rotimi Amaechi and other members of the G-7 group not to dump him and the PDP for the opposition APC.

Jonathan, who described Governor Amaechi as his brother, said if Amaechi want peace with him he should stop talking to the media and allow them to settle everything as a big family.

Amaechi said he doesn't have anything against President Jonathan as a person but the actions of people who take orders from him are ridiculing the powers of a governor under the constitution. Amaechi said governors of PDP and other parties voted for him as NGF Chairman, hence he should be recognized as such.
Maybe Jonathan is still afraid that recognizing Amaechi as NGF chairman might be dangerous as the opposition can easily win Amaechi and other G-7 governors over.
As a result, Jonathan refused to agree that Amaechi be recognized as NGF chairman but proposed that they should meet again on October 7, 2013, to appraise the demands.
At the end of the meeting, Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River sate wrote a statement that was read, as both parties agree to speak less on the problems until they meet again.

The New PDP governors, from opinions gathered, are however suspecting that Jonathan is trying to buy time with his frequent shifting of meeting dates until such a time that it would be too late.
