It is unfair for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to have both its presidential candidate and the national chairman from the northern region of the country.

This was the position of the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman, Walid Jibrin, who was a guest on Channels Television Sunday Politics.

The presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and the national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, are from the country’s northern region, a development Jibrin said isn’t great.

“To tell the truth, it will not be fair for the president of Nigeria to be from the north, the chairman of the party from the north, and the BoT chairman from the north,” he noted during the show.

“By next week, we will get the report. And when we find out that somebody is wrong in what has happened, we will come up openly to tell the party that it is wrong. Whatever we can do, we will do it in the interest of the party to make the party remain as PDP.”

The PDP chief, who wouldn’t fret about giving up his position to fix the crack in the party, additionally said the main opposition will retain the presidential seat next year.

The comment on Sunda came closely after the crisis in the PDP following its presidential election, which saw Atiku emerging as the flag bearer.

The former VP crushed Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State in the keenly-contested poll to secure the ticket, an accomplishment that launched one more round of crisis in the party.

While Wike in the wake of the election claimed he was cheated and accused the PDP of bypassing its laws in the poll, the Rivers leader was recommended, among others, as running mate for Atiku.

Yet, the former VP rather picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, explaining that the move was on the grounds that the Delta State governor meets “all or most of the qualities” he desires.

Following the remark, Wike blamed Atiku for telling “many untruths”. Endeavors to accommodate the pair are yet to yield the ideal outcomes.
