If things pan out in the People's Democratic Party as currently planned, there is every chance for Dr Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State to secure the party's ticket and contest the 2023 presidential election. Peter Obi is one of the most sellable, marketable and credible presidential aspirants with a national figure from the Southern part of the country.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has once again displayed intelligence in their recent approval for a Northern candidate to contest the presidential race under their party. This decision came after the emergence of Senator Iyorchia Ayu as the consensus chairman of the party who happens to come from the North Central.
It is no more news that the Peoples Democratic Party PDP Leaders in the North have endorsed the former Senate President, Ayu Iyorchia as the consensus National Chairman of the Party. Though, Ayu has not been fully ratified by as authentic chairman of the Party, as this will be done at the national convention of the Party.
The north central caucus of the PDP had come up with a conclusion to field Mr. Iyorchia Ayu as the consensus candidate for the PDP convention. The Benue State governor made this known as preparation increases for the race. The anointed candidate can now meet Atiku Abubakar for a deal.
Opinion: Reasons PDP Presidential Ticket May Not Come To South Despite The Emergence Of Ayu As Consensus National Chairmanship Candidate
Members of the opposition party, People's Democratic Party may witness the mother of all dramas over who gets the presidential ticket at their primaries to contest the 2023 general election. For now, many believed that the emergence of Ayu Iyorchia as the consensus Chairmanship candidate for the party convention slated for the end of this month has answered the question of zoning which has been a subject of debate in the last few days.
Mr. Iyorchia Ayu shouldn't be carried away by the euphoria of the new office he would soon occupy. He should rather focus on a particular lesson which he should learn from former APC Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole. Mr. Ayu may find some difficulties sooner than expected as he looks forward to occupying the PDP secretariat.
Mr. Uche Secondus has said that he wouldn't withdraw the case from the court. And this means all is not yet well with the opposition party just as it gets ready for the national convention. His case may cause more problems for the opposition party more than what the party leaders may imagine.
