The council will be deputised by the Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed – for the northern region. The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde,will deputies for the organisation in the South.
The list also has Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, as its Director-General.

The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has given political parties September 28, 2022 for official commencement of national campaigns ahead of the 2023 elections.
There are visible cracks in the PDP ahead of the February elections. The Southern governors are seeking to be included in the party’s structure and not allocate everything to the North.
The Party’s presidential candidate is from the north, the former BOT chairman is from the North, and the chairman is also from the same region.
