2019: Five PDP Governors Seeking Deal With Buhari?

This story is kind of childish and difficult to believe, because the PDP is very strong in the South-South and South-East, so why will any governor from these two zones be afraid to contest the 2019 Elections?

According to The Nation, five Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors are seeking a secret pact with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Specifically, the deal is for the governors to support Buhari’s re-election in return for the Presidency’s backing in their bid to retain their seats.

The governors, who could not be named for “strategic” reasons, have sent emissaries, including two All Progressives Congress (APC) governors, to the President on their proposal.

One of the governors sent a message to the President in China through an APC governor, The Nation learnt yesterday.

Although one of the five PDP governors initiated the “deal”, the positive signals from the mediating APC governors and some top officials of the Presidency motivated four others to join.

The “bleak prospect” of not being re-elected may have accounted for the desperation of the governors, according to sources in the Presidency.

The five PDP governors are said to be from the Southsouth and the Southeast. Two are from the Southsouth and three from the Southeast. How possible?
