There are indications that a new National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may emerge on Thursday, reports The Sun.
The party has already fixed a meeting of its National Executive Committee (NEC) for that day, ostensibly to appoint a substantive National Chairman.
Prior to that day, a lot of political horse-trading has already began among politicians from the zones jostling to fill the position.
The party has already zoned the post to the North- east.
There are reports that the North-east and South- west caucuses of the party have sealed a deal to ensure that whoever emerges from the North-east gets only a six- month tenure.
Thursday’s meeting would be preceded with the meeting of other statutory organs of the party; the PDP national caucus and the Board of Trustees (BoT).
The two organs are expected to ratify the candidate to be presented by the North- east caucus of the party.
The caucus meeting will hold on Tuesday while the Board of Trustees meeting will hold on Wednesday.
The BoT members may also appoint a substantive Chairman to replace Haliru Bello who has been holding forth in acting capacity after the exit of its erstwhile Chairman, Tony Anenih last May.
