PDP holds SouthWest zonal Congress in Osogbo today

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is set to hold its SouthWest Zonal Congress in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, today.

A total of 42 aspirants have been screened to contest for 22 positions in the zonal executive of the party, and 743 delegates have been cleared to participate.

There have been disagreements and exchange of words between Governor Seyi Makinde, of Oyo State and a former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose over control of the party’s structure in the South-West. This disagreement forced the PDP National Secretariat to move the venue of the congress from Ibadan, the Oyo State capital to Osogbo, the capital of Osun State.
