New PDP Chairman May Emerge On Thursday

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.
