A party source said: “The party is working to reduce the number of aspirants before the primaries, nothing is certain for now, but the leadership does not want all the 15 aspirants to contest.


“Definitely, on their own, some of the aspirants might even step down and join forces with those they feel might have a brighter chance of winning the election.


“The main challenge now is how to zero in. The governors are rooting for one of their own to clinch the ticket of the party. But the NWC and the BOT are not in support of the governors.”
