The preferred candidate of Barr.Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State Governor, Gov. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has emerged as the new Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum.
A tweet by PDP spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan indicates that Gov.Tambuwal was unanimously elected to replace Gov.Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, whose tenure ends next month.
Before now, Gov.Samuel Ortom and Gov.Darius Ishaku among others had earlier indicated interest to take over from Gov.Dickson.
Gov.Wike had reportedly used his influence in the PDP to root behind his 2019 preferred presidential aspirant who later lost to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
