PDP Chairmanship: Battle Shifts To Enugu
Worried by the intense intrigue over the choice of a new National Chairman of the party, the governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are expected to meet in Enugu.
The emergency session, which holds either Sunday (today) or Monday, is expected to address some issues raised by party leaders including fears of imposition of a candidate.
Since the party announced the zoning of the position to the South, party leaders have not been able to have a common ground.
The governors are said to be worried about how to manage the December National Convention in a manner that will not split the party.
Some former governors and leading members of the party have already threatened to leave the party if the excesses of a few PDP governors were unchecked.
It was gathered that the governors are meeting in Enugu to take a second look at the intrigues and find solutions which will unite the party.
The governors at the meeting will also review the report of the committee, headed by Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State, saddled with the responsibility of recommending the zoning formula for the party’s national offices.
The governor was picked as the head of the committee at the national caucus meeting of the party held in Abuja on Wednesday night.
Those in the race for the National Chairmanship position from the South-West are Olabode George, Prof.Tunde Adeniran, Prof. Toaheed Adedoja, Jimi Agbaje, Senator Rashidi Ladoja and Gbenga Daniel.
Uche Secondus and Raymond Dokpesi, who are from the South-South, are also vying for the office.
