S/East PDP governors, leaders meet

09 May 2016, 21:34

Enugu - Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), including three governors elected on the party’s platform in the South-east geopolitical zone met in Enugu on Sunday.

This is the second time the leaders will be meeting in one week.

The meeting which was attended by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu as well as Governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State also had the presence of former Governors of Anambra and Imo States, Peter Obi and Ikedi Ohakim. 

However, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and his Anambra State counterpart, Willie Obiano, were conspicuously absent.

Some former governors including Martin Elechi, (Ebonyi), Sullivan Chime (Enugu) and Senator Theodore Orji of Abia who were said to have been invited to the meeting were also absent.

No reason was given for their inability to attend.

It could be re-called that ever since former Governor Theodore Orji served out his tenure as Chairman of the South-east Governors' Forum, the group has been embroiled in leadership tussle.

Gov Okorocha has interest in the position, being the oldest among the governors, his colleagues are insisting that the position should be rotating among the five states.
