South-West PDP Leaders Meet Over Party’s National Chairman
Chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West met in Lagos on Monday night.
The meeting centred on the forthcoming National Convention of the party and how the zone can present a single candidate for the party's National Chairmanship position?
The meeting was convened by the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.
Those present at the meeting included a former governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja; a former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Bode George; a former Minister of Information, Dapo Sarumi; a former National Vice-Chairman of the PDP (South-West), Tajudeen Oladipupo.
Fayose said he convened the meeting to share aspirations with them, find a common ground and go to the convention as an indivisible and united group.
The governor said it would be wrong for the South-West PDP to “go to the convention like people without cohesion”.
The party chieftains agreed to meet again to present a common front at the December 9 convention.
PDP had zoned the National Chairmanship position to the South-West, and no fewer than four aspirants from the zone have mounted serious campaigns to vie for the party’s number one seat.
Those who have declared their interest in the position include Bode George; a former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel; a former Minister of Education, Prof. Tunde Adeniran; and a former Minister of Youths, Prof. Taoreed Adedoja.
