2019 PRESIDENCY: Atiku, Tambuwal split PDP govs, stakeholders

There are indications that the recent defection of some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) might have created a nightmare for the major opposition party in the country.

Already, governors elected on the platform of PDP and other stakeholders are divided over the party’s presidential ticket for next year’s election.

They are torn between handing over the ticket to defectors or members who had stayed in the party since 2015 when PDP became an opposition party.

So far, about 11 aspirants are in contention for the PDP ticket, which has been zoned to the North.
