Abuja - Former President Goodluck Jonathan caused confusion within the People's Democratic Party (PDP) over the weekend when he failed to make an appearance at the party's south-south congress, held in Port Harcourt on Saturday.
According to Naij, no reason was given for Jonathan's absence, with many assuming that he didn't show due to alleged misunderstandings between elders and younger politicians within the party's fold.
While speaking at the congress, held at the Obi Wali International Civic Centre, Emmanuel Ogiri, new national Vice President of the PDP, expressed confidence that the party could gain a victory in the 2019 elections.

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State mirrored Ogiri's enthusiasm, while vowing that the party would ensure its stronghold over the south-south zone, Sun News Online has reported.
“The South-South governors will make sure that PDP retains the zone. All the governors in the zone will work as a family. We shall give all necessary support to our party members in Edo State for the party to reclaim the state in September,” he said.
