Ikpeazu Moves To Lobby PDP Stakeholders On Preferred Successor

The hide and seek game over the successor of the Abia State governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, may finally come to an end this week as the governor meets with members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) State Working Committee (SWC) and wards executives on Wednesday

Newsmen gathered that Governor Ikpeazu has asked the state PDP Chairman, Allwell Asiforo Okere, to call a meeting with the chairman, secretary, deputy chairman, youth leader and women leader from all wards in Abia State and members of the SWC on Wednesday. The ward leaders are automatic delegates who will select the PDP candidate in a primary election.

Sources revealed that Governor Ikpeazu may want to use the meeting to lobby and persuade SWC members and the wards executive to support his plan to pick a preferred governorship candidate from Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area.

Ikpeazu’s kinsmen from Abia South and part of Abia Central Senatorial Districts have been drawn in a battle with Abia North Senatorial zone over which zone should produce the next governor of the state. While the governor is believed to prefer a successor from Ngwaland, stakeholders in Abia North say it is their turn to produce the next governor.

It was gathered that Governor Ikpeazu’s earlier intention was to meet wards delegates alone today or tomorrow to get their understanding before announcing his preferred candidate, believed to be a prominent member of Elite Club of Ngwaland.

The meeting, it was learnt, was shifted to Wednesday when party leaders told the governor that it was improper for him to meet wards executives before giving the SWC members such privilege first.
