Fresh crisis brews in South-west PDP over chairmanship seat

31 March 2016, 20:26

Ibadan - Few days after some chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party in South-west nominated a former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Olabode George to vie for the position of the National Charmian, another set of leaders from the zone have restated their support for a Northern candidate for the seat.

The leaders pushing for the emergence of a South-west candidate for seat are insisting that it was the turn of the zone to produce the next National Chairman of the party.

The zone has never produced the party’s Chairman since the party was formed.

But, some chieftains of the party from the zone, who met in Ibadan on Wednesday supported the proposal to retain the National Chairmanship seat in the North.

They said retaining the position in the North will brighten the chances of the party in the 2019 elections.

The leaders pointed out that the North which has only two PDP governors, will be further weakened by being denied the position of the National Chairman.

Those that attended the meeting included the party’s scribe Wale Oladipo, its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, Senator Buruji Kahsamu and South West State Chapter Chairmen – Captain Tunji Shelle (Lagos), Yinka Taiwo (Oyo),  Ganiyu Olaoluwa (Osun) and their counterparts from Ondo, Ekiti and Ogun.
