By Gabriel Enogholase

BENIN—FORMER Edo State deputy chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Clement Edo- Osagie, has described the call by former Minister of Foreign Affairs, and a chieftain of PDP, Chief Tom Ikimi, for the zoning of the 2019 presidential ticket to the southern part of the country, as another infraction that could plunge the party into further crisis.

Ikimi was quoted to have at a meeting of PDP Southern Consultative Forum called for the zoning of the PDP presidential ticket for 2019 to the South.

However, Edo-Osagie, in a statement in Benin, said the call was unnecessary and aimed at sabotaging the efforts of the leadership of the party to finding a lasting solution to the crisis facing the party.
