The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has offered three National Working Committee seats to the Northeastern region of the country.

Meanwhile, a self-acclaimed disciple of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Simon Ekpa, has claimed that plans have been concluded to hand over power to former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar.
