PDP: IBB loyalists, Jonathan, Adeniran tinker with ‘national list’

The tension over the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) heightened yesterday with the founding fathers of the party, loyalists of former President Ibrahim Babangida and ex-President Goodluck Jonathan launching a counter plot against governors, The Nation gathered.

Apart from breaking the ranks of the governors, the founding fathers, who are being led by Babangida and Jonathan, are also said to be tinkering with a “National List” for delegates to avert a post-convention crisis.

The founders of the party, including members of the Board of Trustees, have remained adamant on the zoning of National Chairman to the Southwest.

It was also learnt that there is pressure on Dr. Jonathan to call the PDP governors, who are being coordinated by Nyesom Wike (Rivers) and Ayo Fayose, to order.
