‘We’ll act as opposition after the convention’- PDP

Tension has remained high as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) prepares for its August 17, 2016 National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where the South-West geo-political zone is expected to produce the new National Chairman for the first time in the history of the party. In this piece, which focuses on the forthcoming convention, Daily Trust on Sunday takes a look at the contenders for the chairmanship position in the South-West zone, the party’s desperate reconciliation moves and the anxiety over conflicting court judgments.
It is no longer news that PDP leaders from the South-South and South-East geo-political zones have conceded the position of the party’s National Chairman to the South-West zone at a meeting attended by governors, National Assembly members and former ministers in Port Harcourt on Thursday night.
