PDP bode george

According to Kashamu, it was clear now that Makarfi is working in sync with some members of the PDP to deny the South-West the chance to have the next national chairman of the party at the December 9 elective convention.

The Governor of Ekiti State and Chairman of PDP Governors Forum, Ayodele Fayose, has boasted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) now has all it takes not only to win the forthcoming November 18 Governorship election in Anambra State, but that the party is equally formidable enough to take over the Presidency in 2019.

TheNewsGuru.com reports that Secondus is one of the front-runners for the office of the national chairman of the party at its national convention slated for December 9 in Abuja.

They spoke yesterday, during the inauguration of the headquarters of the Ambassador Dare Bejide Campaign Organisation located on Ikere Road, Ajilosun, Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

Top Congressman says he has proof Trump is lying about Russian hacking
Speaking at a news conference on Sunday in Hanoi, Trump said he stands with intelligence agencies on their findings. Trump's visits to Beijing, Seoul, and Tokyo focused by-and-large on two major issues: North Korea and trade.

He said, "It is not hidden that prior to the emergence of the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee, a generally acceptable zoning of national EXCO positions have been reached; where the national chairmanship was zoned to the South, on the understanding that the next presidential candidate shall be of northern extraction".

‎The eight contenders for the office of PDP national chairman, present at the meeting, were a former Minister of Sports and Special Duties; Prof. The major South-South contestants, Prince Uche Secondus and High Chief Raymond Dokpesi are eminently qualified for the National Chairmanship of our party, except for the process and implications of a unilateral imposition.

"God will forbid a situation in which our (national) chairman, after being elected at the convention will be having an EFCC case hanging on his neck for him not to be sent back to jail".

He urged stakeholders to ensure a candidate from the South-West emerged as the National Chairman of the party for the first time to avoid the death of the party in the zone.

The deal struck between the financial crime prosecutor's office and the bank is a first in France under a new procedure. On the basis of the data, the French authorities initiated a formal investigation into HSBC in 2014.

One of the stakeholders from the South West specifically told Daily Trust that the move by Fayose and Wike to make Secondus a sole candidate for the chairmanship post hit the rock following resistance by other governors and stakeholders.

Fayose said that the governors met to deliberate on the forthcoming national convention and discussed with the chairmanship aspirants.

Chief George praised the PDP founding fathers for their originality and wisdom as established in the zonal balancing, noting that his 10 years service at the National Secretariat has adequately prepared him for the job of the National Chairman.
