Convention: PDP sources say former governors may produce next national chairman
Meanwhile, governors elected under the PDP might have ceded the right to produce the next national chairman of the party as they ratified the zoning of offices in the National Working Committee (NWC).
According to the report, the former governors met in Abuja on Wednesday, September 8 where they invited other party stakeholders to their session to seek their input in the zoning arrangement for the new NWC that would be elected at the October national convention.
During the meeting, an agreement was reached on the slots to be given to former governors and ministers to field candidates.
