The Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony Anenih, may have been thrown into confusion and silence over the happenings in the country in the last one week as he now keeps to himself.
The PDP chieftain, known in political circle as “Mr. Fix It” virtually ran away from journalists yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja shortly after he had held a consultation meeting with Vice-President Namadi Sambo.
According to an online news medium, Greenbarge Reporters, journalists, including television and newspaper cameramen, had lain in waiting for him at the entrance to the vice-president’s wing of the Presidential Villa with barrage of questions on some of the issues that had arisen within the PDP and in Nigeria during the week.
The questions bordered on the damning letter from the former President Olusegun Obasanjo to President Goodluck Jonathan which caused political waves between yesterday and today, the issue of the G-5 governors that had since defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), the agitation for the resignation of Bamanga Tukur as the national chairman of PDP and the failed dialogue President Jonathan had with the remaining G-2 governors last Sunday.
When Anenih emerged from the vice-president’s office, he was confronted with such questions but he never answered any.
Rather, he pushed through a cream of journalists and cameramen that were blocking his way and preventing him from moving pass them so as to obtain at least, a cough from him.
He made sure that his lips were gummed together even as his security detailed assisted him in cordoning off the journalists to make way for him to go away.
