Two Former Northern Governors That May Be Considered As PDP National Chairman Ahead Convention

It is no more news that the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has fixed the date for the National Convention of the Party. It should be recalled that the Party Leaders fixed 30th to 31st of October for the National Convention of the Party. Meanwhile, the Party Leaders had zoned the Position of National Chairman of the Party to the North contrary to the initial zoning system of the Party when the Leaders of the Party zoned the Position of Chairman to the South.

However, There are Some Northern Governors that may be considered as the National Chairman of the Party, since the Leaders of the Party had zoned the Position to the North. One of the PDP Governors in the North that could be considered as National Chairman of the Party is the former Governor of Kaduna State Ahmed Makarfi. Ahmed Makarfi was once time National Chairman of the Party and he did well as the chairman of the Party in discharging his responsibilities.

Though, Makarfi has not declared his interest to contest Presidential race but if the Party Leaders can reach out to him, he will show the interest and Perform well as chairman of the Party. The Experience that Makarfi gathered when he was the National Chairman of the Party and as the former Governor of Kaduna State, is enough for him to Perform well, if he could be considered for the Position.

Another Former Governor in the North that best fit as the National Chairman of the Party is the Former Governor of Kwara State, Bukola Saraki. It should be recalled that Saraki contested 2019 Presidential race and there is more assurance that he will still contest Presidential race in 2023, because the zoning system of the Party does not seem to favour him, it will be very good if Saraki may contest for the Position of National Chairman of the Party.

Though, Saraki has never show any interest to contest for the Position of National Chairman of the Party but he will do well as chairman of the Party, if he can contest for the Position. It should be recalled that Saraki was the Chairman reconciliation Committee of the Party and he was able to unite the aggrieved members of the Party. This means that Saraki will do well as the National Chairman of the Party, if he can be voted as National Chairman of the Party in the forthcoming National Convention.
