Our sources tell us that the invitation was sent through an agent of the government and the minority out of respect to the Council of State has honoured the invitation after seeking approval from the NDC leadership.
The meeting which is currently on going at an unknown Hotel is to beg the Haruna Iddrisu led minority to Withdraw the petition.
Already news making rounds indicate that Franklin Templeton, the company that bought 95% of the Bond is alleged to have indicated to the Government of Ghana that they want to Withdraw their investment.
The murky nature of this transaction has caused the NPP government so much embarrassment to the point where the A-G who is the principle legal adviser to the government has publicly stated that she is unaware of the details of the transaction.
We are currently monitoring the situation and will report back after the meeting.
