    The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is expected to meet next week.

    The committee members would meet to ratify the list of members of the Presidential Campaign Council before the list is made official.

    The rift between the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar and the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has hindered the party from constituting members of the campaign council.

    Wike had placed some demands before Atiku in exchange for his support ahead of the 2023 general elections.

    Part of the demands of the Rivers State Governor is for the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu to resign from office.

    Governor Wike wants someone from the South-West to take over from Ayu if he eventually resigns from office.

    There are indications that Rivers State Governor also asked to be allowed to nominate principal officers of the National Assembly and some ministers if PDP wins the 2023 presidential election.

    A source that spoke with Daily Sun said the NEC of the party would be looking at all the demands of the Rivers State Governor before the official unveiling of the committee members.
