PDP Chairmanship: South-West May Present Consensus Candidate
The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West is currently working on an arrangement that would see the zone produced a consensus candidate for the office of National Chairman.
The hint was dropped by one of the aspirants, Prof. Tunde Adeniran during his visit to canvass votes from 59 delegates of the party in Ondo state.
Asked why it was becoming difficult for all the aspirants from the zone to agree on a consensus candidate, Adeniran said: “We are talking among ourselves.”
“l am sure we will get it right before the convention. God does not make mistakes I am sure he will step in.”
Adeniran, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja, Bode George, Rashidi Ladoja and Gbenga Daniel are contesting for the chairmanship of the party from the South-West.
The other two aspirants, Uche Secondus and Raymond Dokpesi are from the South-South.
But, a new twist has been added to the contest following a new initiative by state Chairmen of the party to fence off all the contestants.
The state Chairmen during a secret meeting on Wednesday agreed to field one of their own to replace the outgoing caretaker committee.
One of the chairmen, who spoke in confidence, said the Chairmen did not have confidence in those currently campaigning to lead the party.
