While the dust raised by the rally sponsored by a noisy South-South Governors which resulted in the death and maiming of scores of people in Vice President Namadi Sambo’s home state of Kaduna is yet to settle down, the politician has embarked on another sinister project.
This time around the governor has set aside N500 million with the intent to bury the Vice President politically and polarize the North Geo-political zone.
According to a reliable source the governor who pretends to be working for the re-election of President Jonathan in 2015, in reality is building a platform for himself because he believes the President will not succeed in his re-election bid.
The source further hinted that the real target of the oil-rich state governor who has developed a penchant of betraying his best friends is to be noticed and picked as a running mate by any Northern candidate that may emerge in the run up to the 2015 race.
To actualize this dream, our reliable source revealed that the Governor who has been fuelling the current rift between the presidency and the G-7 governors, has be using emissaries to donate huge sums of money to selected traditional rulers in the North.
All these moves ,according to our source, are to get the sympathy of the rulers, when eventually the need for him to be picked as a running name comes.
Even the seeming closeness which the governor cultivates with the president, his spouse and members of the PDP is to mask his real intention of gunning for the number to seat in Nigeria.
Furthermore, it was gathered that the governor had made several attempts to break into the political machinery of former Vice President Atiku, but met a brickwall.
As a way to block the invasion of his political turf, Vice President Namadi Sambo has since directed his political son the Kaduna State Governor to block the activities of the South-South governor.
