A major war is brewing between President Goodluck Jonathan and governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic party, PDP. The war follows a ban placed on the picking of consensus candidate by the PDP National Working Committee(NWC). The governors are accusing the President and the NWC of double standards. THE NATION has this story.

The governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) yesterday kicked against the stoppage of consensus endorsement of their candidature and others in their states for the 2015 poll by the National Working Committee(NWC) of the party.

The aggrieved governors alleged that the NWC had acted in concert with the presidency to halt the endorsement gale. They also accused the presidency and the NWC of “double standards” when the leader of the party, President Goodluck Jonathan had benefited from the same consensus endorsement. Some of the governors also said they might ask the National Convention of the party to revisit the endorsement of Jonathan by the National Executive Committee(NEC).

The National Secretary of the party, Prof. Wale Oladipo, had on Thursday voided the endorsement of governorship, senatorial and other candidates by the governors and state chapters. The party directed the governors and state chairmen of PDP to cancel such endorsements.
