Abuja - National leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday met with some of the party’s governors in Abuja, reports Vanguard.
The meeting was called to deliberate on the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to go ahead with the supplementary election in Kogi State on December 5.
The meeting was hosted by Governor Segun Mimiko of Ondo State at the Ondo State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja.
During the meeting, the party leaders agreed to explore two options to remove the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the election on the basis of the death of its candidate.

The first option is for the party to go to court to remove the APC from the contest on the claim that it no longer had a valid ticket of a governorship candidate and a deputy governorship candidate in the supplementary election.
The second option being looked at is to press INEC to declare the PDP’s standard bearer, Governor Idris Wada as winner of the election on the basis of being the only one with a valid ticket after the completion of the election.
Among those present at the PDP meeting were the National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, who chaired the meeting; some members of the National Working Committee (NWC), members of the Board of Trustees (BoT) and some governors.
