The Peoples Democratic Party has postponed its Board of Trustees, BOT, meeting to December 8.

The meeting, earlier scheduled for late Friday evening, was meant to elect a new Chairman for the Board.

Sources at the presidential villa, venue of the meeting, say there was a heated argument between members before the postponement.

Top among the contenders for the chairmanship position, last held by former President Olusegun Obasanjo before his resignation, is Tony Anenih, a former Chairman of the board and former Minister of Works who has been indicted in the past for mismanaging billions of naira meant for road repairs and construction, and Ahmadu Ali, whose son is being prosecuted for collecting hundreds of millions of naira as fuel subsidy payments without delivering petrol.
