The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in some states is currently battling a crisis with the 2023 general elections at hand.

The National Chairman of the party, Ayu Iyorchia claimed a few days ago that the main opposition party is aiming to win 25 states in the forthcoming elections.

The aim of the National party chairman could be truncated with the crisis rocking some state chapters of the party.

Crisis in some of the state chapters happened before primaries held between last May and June, while others are a result of the outcomes of the selection process for candidates.
