Enugu - The relationship between President Goodluck Jonathan and Gov Sullivan Chime of Enugu State has taken a turn for the worse, reports NewsDay.
The governor has kicked against President Jonathan’s order that he should drop his senatorial ambition.
He has gone ahead to declare his intention to contest for the Enugu West Senatorial District seat in defiance to an earlier agreement with President Jonathan.
While declaring his intention at the Enugu West Senatorial District Zonal meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chime said President Jonathan has not been firm over his discussions with him.
President Jonathan had mediated a peace meeting between Chime and the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who currently represent the Enugu West senatorial zone at the Senate.
The President was reported to have prevailed upon Chime to drop his ambition and allow Ekweremadu return to his seat in 2015.
