ABUJA-The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will on Monday hold an emergency 80th National Executive Committee (NEC) and Board of Trustees (BoT) meeting.
In a notice issued late on Sunday night  by the party’s National Secretary, Senator Umaru Ibrahim Tsauri, the party enjoined members of the two organs to attend the meeting which is fixed for 4 P.Mat the PDP national secretariat.
Although details of the emergency meeting remain sketchy as at the time of going to press, our correspondent gathered that the top on the agenda is the presentation of the report of the Ekiti governorship election which held penultimate Saturday as well as preparations for the forthcoming Osun gubernatorial polls.
Also on the cards is the number of Presidential aspirants on the platform of the party which the leadership considers too many.
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, ex- governors of Kaduna, Jigawa, Sokoto and Kano States, Ahmed Makarfi, Sule Lamido, Attahiru Bafarawa and Ibrahim Shekarau respectively; as well as Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo (Gombe), former Minister of Special Duties, Kabiru Turaki and businessman, Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed are all in the race for the party’s sole Presidential ticket.
