Feelers emerged on yesterday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rescheduled its presidential campaign rallies for Kebbi and Zamfara states indefinitely.

The presidential rallies which were slated to take place on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13, of October 2022 respectively were, however, put on hold.

Though the party has not offered any explanation to that effect, it was learnt from unconfirmed sources that the party was halting the rallies to return to the negotiation table with the Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike.

The National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, had on Monday told a gathering of party faithful that the party’s train had moved but slowly to wait for those who might be joining them in the campaign.

Wike has been mounting pressure on the national chairman of the party to resign for balance, equity and fairness claiming that the party leadership is heavily dominated by the North.

According to the Rivers State governor, the national chairman promised to step aside once the party’s standard bearer emerged from the North.

He pointed out that for him to be part of the party’s affairs, the national chairman had to resign.
