South-East stakeholders are expected to present their list of expectations as well as positions on issues of mutual benefit as the party prepares for the 2023 general elections.
The meeting between Atiku, Okowa and the PDP stakeholders was confirmed to Vanguard by a Spokesperson for the party’s presidential campaign, Charles Aniagwu.
