The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-South has vowed to ensure that the zone remains under the firm control of the party after the 2019 general elections.
Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike stated this while addressing newsmen shortly after the party’s South-South zonal meeting in Port Harcourt, last week.
Wike also said that the meeting resolved to constitute the South-South PDP Presidential Campaign Council.
He said, “We have resolved to set up a presidential campaign council in South-South and then take a date for the zonal presidential campaign rally.
”South-South is the stronghold of the PDP and we want to retain that. All the states in the zone must continue to remain under the PDP,” the governor declared.
The governor noted that the meeting worked out modalities for the success of the party during the forthcoming polls.
”We have set up modalities for the success of our party in the governorship, National Assembly and State Assembly elections in 2019″, he said.
The Tide reports that the meeting attracted governors, State PDP Chairmen, National Assembly members, Speakers of Houses of Assembly and Former Federal Lawmakers from the South-South zone.
