Lokoja - Former President Goodluck Jonathan and some of the old power blocks within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have moved to stop Kogi Governor Idris Wada from getting the party’s ticket for the forthcoming governorship election in the state, reports The Nation.
Wada was accused of being responsible for the party’s defeat in the March 28 presidential election in the state.

Jonathan believes Wada supported the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari because he is a Muslim.
Another reason why Jonathan is bitter with Wada, was because of Wada’s visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his Abeokuta home in Ogun State.
Aside Jonathan, other PDP chieftains opposed to the return of Wada as governor include former PDP national chairman, Dr Ahmadu Ali and former Governor Ibrahim Idris.
