PDP National Convention And The 2019 General Election

PDP National Convention And The 2019 General Election

With barely less than two days to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP's national convention billed for coming Saturday, December 9, 2017, the party has said that the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, who had defected back to the opposition PDP from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), recently, would not vote during the convention, which holds at Eagles Square, Abuja.

The party, however, dismissed the insinuation of imposition of aspirants on the delegates. In the race for the chairmanship position are two frontline candidates - former Minister of Education, Prof.

In another development, the Chairman of the Convention Planning Committee, who is also the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has summoned all the 37 state chairmen of the party to an emergency meeting.

Since the party micro-zoned the seat the Southwest and then later opened it up to the entire South-South zone, leaders have pitched tents amongst the aspirants amidst bickerings that have refused to go away with accusations and counter accusations threatening to undo the fragile peace that the party presently enjoys.

Makarfi in a statement by his spokesperson, Mallam Mukhtar Sirajo, yesterday, said "Senator Makarfi was asked what threat the return of Atiku Abubakar to the party portended to the aspirations of others who had either made their intentions known or those, who, like him were rumoured to be nursing such ambition".

According to him, the PDP while in power never interrupted programmes of other political parties, "rather it encouraged the growth of other parties", he said.

Dokpesi also said that PDP Governors are performing better than their APC counterparts. They are not thinking about the future of the party.

He advised the would-be winners and losers to accept the outcome of the elections in the interest of all, saying, "Win or lose, we are still one family".

We have credible information that some overzealous elements in the government are trying by any means to disrupt the convention of the PDP; to make sure this convention does not hold successfully.
