Amid the internal crises rocking the opposition, the People’s Democratic Party National Working Committee is currently engaged in a meeting with candidates for the party’s governorship in the federation’s 36 states at the party’s headquarters in Wuse, Abuja. The PUNCH reports.
The meeting is attended by all PDP governorship candidates except Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, who is currently out of the country.
Likewise, Bauchi state governor Bala Mohammed, who was also absent at the time the meeting began, is said to have apologized and noted that he would participate if the session continues.
The closed-door meeting has been labeled as an interactive session between the national party leadership and the party candidates ahead of the 2023 elections.
The meeting comes amid a call for National President Dr Iyorchia Ayu to step aside from Nyesom Wike’s camp as part of the terms for resolving the deadlock over the governor’s choice of Delta, Ifeanyi Okowa, as the party’s presidential running mate.
