The Arewa Pathfinders of the PDP has backed the call by the Northern Elders and Leaders Forum that all northern delegates should vote for South West chairmanship contestants at tomorrow’s national convention.
The group said the northern elders and leaders only re-echoed the position of the PDP Southern leaders’ meeting which was held at the Rivers State Government House, on August 4, 2016, where they unanimously agreed to micro-zone the national chairmanship position to the South West.
“It is pertinent to note that we are also aware that since that meeting, the Southern leaders have not met to reverse it. So the call for the national chairmanship aspirants to go to the South West by the northern elders is not only valid but honourable,” the group said in a statement signed by its coordinator, Abdullahi Ali Kano and secretary, Hon. Saleh Alhassan Tsiga.
