•Senate president says quest not a betrayal of ex-VP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may have to pick its presidential flag bearer in next year’s election from the Northwest geo political zone, The Nation gathered yesterday.
With over 18 million eligible voters as at last February, the zone has the largest voting population in the country.
It is followed by the Southwest with over 14million voters.
The Nation gathered that the main opposition party is taking notice of the situation and may settle for one of its presidential aspirants from the zone at its convention next month to slug it out with the incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 2019 poll.
Buhari is on course to emerge as the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate later this month.
