Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State has been elected the chairman the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors’ forum.
Mr. Mimiko was elected at a meeting of the PDP governors in Maitama, Abuja, on Wednesday.
The Ondo governor was deputy to the former chairman of the forum, Godswill Akpabio, the immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom State.
The coordinator of the PDP governors’ forum, Osaro Onaiwu, had told PREMIUM TIMES last week that there had been informal meetings where about nine of the governors agreed that Mr. Mimiko be their new chairman.
According to Mr. Onaiwu, an earlier meeting scheduled for last week was shelved as the governors were engaged in the negotiations and horse-trading with regards to the elections of the new leadership of the national assembly.
The PDP presently has 13 governors.
