Has the horse-trading begun already?

A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olabode George, has announced his withdrawal from the race for the national chairmanship of the party.

He, however, said he did not withdraw for any candidate.

He said he was withdrawing from the race on a matter of principle, saying it was wrong for the party not to have micro-zone the office of the national chairman.

He accused the Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike, of insulting the South-west when he said earlier in the day that the region had not achieved much for the PDP.

Wike is supporting another candidate, Uche Secondus, for the chairmanship of the party.

The screening committee of the Peoples Democratic Party had earlier cleared all the nine national chairmanship aspirants and certified them fit to take part in Saturday’s national convention of the party.
