In early preparations for the 2023 general elections, the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday, April 29, appointeds Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo as the chairman of its new e-registration committee and his Adamawa counterpart,Ahmadu Fintiri as the Vice-chairman.
On its Twitter page on Thursday, the party also made the governor of Adamawa state, Ahmadu Fintiri, the vice-chairman of the committee. The decision was made by the National Executive Council (NEC) of Nigeria’s foremost opposition party.
It announced: “…the @OfficialPDPNig NEC, names Edo state @GovernorObaseki as chairman of the e-registration committee. The Adamawa state governor, @AhmaduFintiri to serve as vice chairman of the committee.”
Meanwhile, the PDP had given a vote of confidence on its National Working Committee (NWC) led by Uche Secondus. The opposition in a tweet revealed that the decision was taken on Thursday, April 29, by the National Executive Council (NEC).
In the same message, the PDP warned all its members and supporters to beware of persons it described as agents of distraction and division. It said: “The @OfficialPDPNig NEC unanimously passes a vote of confidence on the @UcheSecondus-led NWC of our great party and urges members to be wary of agents of distraction and division.”
Recall that the PDP was considering two options in choosing its presidential candidate in 2023; open contest and zoning. Though the 2023 general election was still a little far away, the two main parties in the country, the ruling APC and the PDP, had been occupied with the politics of how and where to choose their presidential flagbearers.
