Anxiety grips PDP presidential aspirants over endorsement by IBB, OBJ, Danjuma, Abdulsalami

There is anxiety within the ranks of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over the disposition of four of the country’s powerful retired army generals concerning the choice of the party’s 2019 presidential candidate.

Three of the four retired generals namely, Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar, were pivotal to the emergence of the fourth general, that is, General Olusegun Obasanjo, as the first President of the Fourth Republic in 1999.

The four, who have, individually and sometimes collectively, played significant roles in the political evolution of the country, are, however, yet to engage unanimity on an aspirant with a view to defeating General Muhammadu Buhari. The inclination of the generals towards the PDP is, however, said to be now taken for granted.

Sources within the camps of the leading presidential aspirants in the PDP told Sunday Vanguard, at the weekend, that the generals are still bristling with bemusement after losing the chairmanship of the PDP to the “boys” led by Governor Nyesom Wike.
