Goodluck Jonathan, the former president of Nigeria was absent at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s south-south zonal congress which held in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital on Saturday, May 14, HeraldNg Reported
Jonathan’s absence at PDP’s south-south congress attributed to likely misunderstandings between some elders and younger politicians in the PDP, Punchh reports.
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state vowed that the PDP would unseat the APC in the forthcoming governorship election in Edo state.
He said: “The South-South governors will make sure that PDP retains the zone. All the governors in the zone will work as a family. We shall give all necessary support to our party members in Edo State for the party to reclaim the state in September.”
At the occasion, the new national vice-chairman of the PDP, south-south zone, Emmanuel Ogiri, expressed confidence that the PDP would win the presidency in 2019.
Ogiri, said the disagreement between elders in the PDP and some members of the party would be resolved before the May 21 national convention of the party.
