The Peoples Democratic Party has rescheduled its presidential campaign rallies for Kebbi and Zamfara states indefinitely.
The presidential rallies were slated to take place on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13, October, 2022 respectively, however, were put on hold.
Though the party has not offered any explanation to that effect, it was learnt from unconfirmed sources that the party was halting the rallies to return to the negotiation table with the Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike.
The National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, had on Monday told a gathering of party faithful that the party’s train has moved but slowly to wait for those who might be joining them in the campaign.
Wike has mounted pressure on the national chairman of the party to resign, for balance, equity and fairness claiming that the party leadership is heavily dominated by the north.
According to the Rivers State governor, the national chairman promised to step aside once the party’s standard bearer emerges from the north.
He pointed out that for him to be part of the party’s affairs the national chairman has to resign which is the bone of contention.
A member of the BoT whose name does not want to appear in print told our correspondent that the BoT is done collating its recommendation from the various visitations.
It was further revealed that the presidential candidate of the party Atiku Abubakar recruited some party chieftains such as former President of the Senate, David Mark, and former Delta State governor, James Ibori, to placate the Rivers State Governor on their rift, considering the value he has in the party.Follow us on social media
