PDP governors, deputies at war

10 November 2014, 12:22

Abuja - The ambition of some deputy governors elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to succeed their bosses is in jeopardy, reports Punch.

All the 13 outgoing  PDP governors have  rebuffed attempts by their deputies to take over from them in the 2015.

Rather, the governors have been rooting for their cronies like their Chiefs of Staff, ex-commissioners and secretary to the state government to succeed them in office.

The governors are those of Abia (Theodore Orji), Akwa Ibom(Godswill Akpabio), Bauchi (Isa Yuguda), Benue (Gabriel Suswam ), Cross River (Liyel Imoke), Delta (Emmanuel Uduaghan) and Enugu (Sulivan Chime).

The rest are Jigawa (Sule Lamido), Katsina (Ibrahim Shema), Kebbi (Usman Dakingari), Niger (Babangia Aliyu), Ebonyi (Martin Elechi) and Plateau (Jonah Jang).

The deputies have, however, refused to be cowed by the governors' endorsement of other aspirants.

Many have gone ahead to purchase nomination forms to contest the governorship elections in their various states.
