PDP Govs Meet, Decide on 2023 Zoning, to Advise NWC

The Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum will today (Monday) meet in Port Harcourt to review the party’s readiness to rescue Nigeria in 2023.

The   Director-General of the  PDP Governors Forum, Cyril Maduabum, disclosed   this on Sunday in a statement  titled ‘PDP Governors meet in Port Harcourt to consolidate on rescue and rebuild Nigeria project’

Although Maduabum’s statement did not state that the forum would discuss strategies for winning  2023 elections, it was learnt that the governors would talk about zoning of the party’s presidential ticket and advise the National Working Committee on where the slot should be zoned to.

But the director-general in the statement he issued said the  meeting would “review the state of the states, the state of the nation and readiness of the PDP to provide the necessary leadership to rescue and rebuild  Nigeria.”

According to the statement, the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, who will preside over the first meeting of the year, did not disclose the full details on the agenda.

He also disclosed that the party’s National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, had been invited to consult with the governors on strategies for executing the rescue and rebuild Nigerian project.

“The PDP governors are working in concert and consultations with other party leaders, particularly the Ayu-led National Executive Committee of the PDP, to craft a credible process and programme for Nigeria’s positive rebirth,” he added

According to Maduabum, all the elected PDP governors are expected to attend the meeting which will be preceded by a Gala night hosted by Governor  Nyesom Wike.

The PDP governors are meeting barely 48 hours before another crucial meeting of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, to be presided over by Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.

Wednesday’s in-person meeting will feature the intervention programmes such as the regular updates from the Nigeria Governors’ Forum State Fiscal Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability Programme team and another on coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security, among others.

Sources close to the secretariat of the NGF informed one of our correspondents that the governors would also discuss the security problem facing their states in particular and the country as a whole.
