Unless there is intervention from President Goodluck Jonathan and other main stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Southeast’s bid to produce the next chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) may be a mirage.

This is because the immediate past chairman of the BoT, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is allegedly seriously campaigning and pushing for the former national chairman of the party, Senator Ahmadu Ali to succeed him.

Also, barring any last minute changes, the BoT will be meeting in the last days of April to decide who will replace Obasanjo who stepped aside as the BoT chairman on April 3 2012.

It was gathered that if the "plot by Obasanjo" to see Dr. Ahmadu Ali  become the next PDP BoT chairman succeeds, then, the incumbent secretary of the Board, Senator Walid Jubrin who was elected barely nine months ago after the former governor of Nasarawa State, Abduallahi Adamu resigned, may be forced to resign as the BoT secretary.

This is because the Northcentral cannot be chairman and secretary of the BoT. Senator Walid Jibrin is a Fulani from Nasarawa State, while Ahmadu Ali is an Igala from Kogi State.
