Most of the aspirants are been contacted by a team set up by Governor Ishaku and some PDP leaders to persuade the aspirants to drop their ambition most especially aspirants from Northern  zone, several sources said.

It's believed that the Party and its leaders recently endorsed an aspirant from Southern Zone to clinch the ticket of the PDP, a move causing ripples among the PDP and its supporters.
