In early preparations for the 2023 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made two critical appointments.
The opposition party on Thursday, April 29, appointed Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state as the chairman of its new e-registration committee.
On its Twitter page on Thursday, the party also made the governor of Adamawa state, Ahmadu Fintiri, the vice-chairman of the committee.
The decision was taken by the National Executive Council (NEC) of Nigeria's foremost opposition party.
"...the @OfficialPDPNig NEC names Edo state @GovernorObaseki as chairman of the e-registration committee. The Adamawa state governor, @AhmaduFintiri to serve as vice chairman of the committee."
Meanwhile, the PDP had given a vote of confidence on its National Working Committee (NWC) led by Uche Secondus.
The opposition in a tweet revealed that the decision was taken on Thursday, April 29, by the NEC. In the same message, the PDP warned all its members and supporters to beware of persons it described as agents of distraction and division.
"The @OfficialPDPNig NEC unanimously passes a vote of confidence on the @UcheSecondus-led NWC of our great party and urges members to be wary of agents of distraction and division."
Recall that the PDP was considering two options in choosing its presidential candidate in 2023; open contest and zoning.
Though the 2023 general election is still a little far away, the two main parties in the country, the ruling APC and the PDP, have been occupied with the politics of how and where to choose their presidential flagbearers.
Political stakeholders from the southeastern part of the country have been at the forefront of the 2023 debate as they argue that it is the turn of the region to produce President Muhammadu Buhari's successor.
