National Chairman: PDP Promises To Support Winner

PDP bode george

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has reiterated the confidence of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors that the party would emerge stronger after the December 9 convention.

Though the meeting which started at 5.30 p.m. and stretched till midnight had planned to possibly reduce the number of aspirants from eight to possibly two or three, it failed to achieve the objective.

Speaking to reporters in the early morning yesterday after the meeting with chairmanship candidates in Enugu, Fayose, who is the chairman of the PDP Governors' Forum, said: "We put PDP first and PDP is first".

Apparently sensing danger ahead of the convention, Kashamu in a statement he personally signed and released in Abuja, warned that the idea of the chairmanship of the party being made "a free for all", could work against the interest of the PDP.

"Major stakeholders in the party also felt it would be equitable and just to further concede the national chairmanship position to the South West which has not had the privilege of producing the national chairman of the party since inception".

He urged stakeholders to ensure a candidate from the South-West emerged as the National Chairman of the party for the first time to avoid the death of the party in the zone.

"And we are leaving Enugu today believing that the PDP will take over power by 2019; we have equally agreed, believing we have all it takes to take over Anambra State and I believe that our people in Anambra State, the Anambrarians have worked very hard, they deserve victory".

On the Anambra guber and future elections in the country, the party demanded for free, fair and credible processes, pointing out that the November 18 exercise in Anambra must be "credible and seen to be credible".

The meeting was well attended by the governors of Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Abia, Ebonyi, and Ekiti states.

Some of the candidates who met with the PDP governors included Bode George, Gbenga Daniel, Uche Secondus, Tunde Adeniran and Jimi Agbaje.

Flanked by other PDP governors, Fayose expressed the belief that the party would win Saturday's governorship poll in Anambra State.

Other party leaders present at the meeting were former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara; Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio; former governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam; former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, and former Minister of Aviation, Dr Kema Chikwe.
