The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday, inaugurated its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
The inauguration is to mark the start of campaign activities for the party.
However, noticeably absent at the event were Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State and Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.
While Mr Makinde is the vice chairman (South) of the council, the rest are members.
It is not clear why the governors, who are members of the PCC, were absent at the event.
It is however not unrelated to their recent calls for a balance in the leadership structure of the party by ensuring that all regions, particularly the south, are properly represented.
The PDP is expected to commence campaign rallies across the country after the Council’s strategic meeting today.
The party plans to commence a campaign rally at Makurdi, the Benue State capital, which is also the home of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
