The incumbent governor of Delta state, who is a foundation member of PDP, assumed office via an inconclusive election on May 29, 2007 and is a medical doctor by profession. Prior to becoming Governor, he was the Commissioner for Health, Delta State and the Secretary to the State Government. Uduaghan ran again for governor in April 26, 2011 elections, and was reelected. He is also believed to have the financial strength to fund the party’s activities.
2. Former Rivers State Governor, Dr. Peter Odili

Having served as Rivers state governor for 8 years (1999-2007), the former governor stands a good chance of clinching the seat. Odili has remained a loyal party man even with his past disagreement with incumbent Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, when he was in PDP. His closeness with Jonathan also gives him an edge over the others. Odili’s leadership quality will be able to bail the party.

Liyel Imoke is the incumbent governor of Cross River State. He took office on May 29, 2007. The election was annulled by an Election Appeal Tribunal in July 2008. He was elected again in a re-run on August 23, 2008.
Although Imoke has debunked rumours that he is replacing Mu’azu, he could be foisted by his colleagues on the party.
The ‘Mu’azu must- go’ campaign plot has thickened as more party chieftains call for his resignation following the inability of the party to do well in the general elections.
