Abuja - Some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party are pushing for the replacement of President Goodluck Jonathan as the party’s presidential candidate in the event that the presidential election does not hold on March 28 as scheduled.
The leaders are currently discussing how to ease President Jonathan out of the race and replace him with another candidate from the Niger Delta zone, reports Sahara Reporters.
The move to replace Jonathan follows intelligence report that the PDP might lose the election if he is fielded as the party’s candidate in the election.
