Former PDP Governors Meet At Suswam's Residence

Former governors of states in Nigeria on the platform of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) met yesterday at the Abuja residence of immediate past governor of Benue State, Dr. Gabriel Suwam.

The meeting held behind closed doors but it was understood that the agenda was not unconnected with the forthcoming congresses of the party at the various levels across the country.

The former governors are known to be the most powerful bloc in the PDP presently and are expected to play a frontline role in determining the future direction and scheme of things in the party.

It is the thinking in many quarters that the wave of electoral victories been recorded by the PDP across the country in re-run and by-elections could be consolidated upon through purposeful leadership to position the party to recapture power at the next round of elections.

This is a view largely fuelled by the generally poor performance of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled governments across the country, including at the federal and states levels, leading to rising cost of living and hardships which is made worse by increased taxation in some states such as Benue.
