08 August 2016, 11:15

Abuja - Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are divided over who to support between Bode George and Jimi Agbaje for the position of the national chairman of the party, reports Punch.

George, a former military governor of old Ondo State, was a former deputy national chairman of the party while Agbaje was the party’s governorship candidate for Lagos State.

The party had on Thursday zoned the position to the South-west.

George enjoys support from PDP governors from the North and about two from the South.

The governors said George remains the best candidate for the job from the zone.

Agbaje on the other hand enjoys support from governors in the South.

The governors routing for Agbaje have argued in favour of having someone who had never held any position in the party as its next national chairman.

Leaders of the party are expected to meet on Monday to pick a consensus candidate among those running for the office of the national chairman of the party, reports News 24.

The meeting will be held in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Apart from these two men, other members of the party who are showing interest in the race are a former Minister of Education, Prof. Tunde Adeniran; a former Governor of Ogun State,  Daniel and a former Minister of Youths and Sports, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja.
