PDP Governors Manages Tension in the Party-Chidoka

Former Aviation Minister Osita Chidoka has said the burden of managing tensions in the Peoples Democratic Party rests in its governors’ hands.
He stated this on Monday during his appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily,

However, Chidoka has argued that the governors cannot control the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) despite their role during the just concluded convention.

He stated that most governors were completing their second term in office, and some would need nominations to vie for other political ambitions in the coming race.

“Governors are members of the PDP and its highest elected officers. The burden of managing PDP, tension falls on the PDP governors,” he said.

“As you go to every state to nominate people for consensus building, zoning, sharing of offices to present diverse interest in the party, there is no better group of people to go than the governors.

“Will the governors control the party post the election? For me, the answer will be a no.” That is where the issue comes in.

The former Aviation boss said he is optimistic that the newly elected National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, will help the party grow.

He, however, urged him to conduct a policy convention whereby the blueprint will be unveiled to the benefit of all Nigerians. He said the party has always included the masses in its activities which makes it outstanding.

“What makes PDP a different party is not just the fact that we share the banner PDP but in the inclusiveness that we promise Nigerians.

“I believe that this NWC will be able to press the reset button in setting the agenda and build an infrastructure for party funding,” he added,
