Ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) national convention, the North has agreed on three candidates to contest for the chairmanship position.

The event scheduled for October 30 will usher in a new National Working Committee (NWC).

The current NWC has been battling with a crisis of confidence and court cases that pushed embattled National Chairman, Uche Secondus, out of office.

After a court ruling in an ongoing suit, Secondus stepped aside for Yemi Akinwonmi, the Acting National Chairman.

The party hopes that the convention will help to resolve the current wranglings so that it can start preparation for the 2023 general elections.

On Thursday, an insider told Press that for the chairmanship, the Northern caucus has presented one candidate per geo-political zone.

However, the PDP Southern caucus is yet to decide on the micro-zoning of NWC positions as the governors are yet to meet.

“No other position has been deliberated on by the Northern or Southern caucus. In fact, the latter has not formally discussed the micro-zoning of any of the positions zoned to the South. The governors are yet to meet”, the source said.

Meanwhile, the PDP Southern governors, officials and other key stakeholders are expected to take decisions on allocated posts within 72 hours.

An agreement will be made public after the gathering approves the states and individuals to contest for certain posts.

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) and Ahmadu Fintiri (Adamawa) chaired the Zoning and Convention Planning Committees.
