The Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have said all is on course for a successful national convention of the party.
Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State gave the assurance during a press briefing at the end of a crucial meeting by the governors held on Wednesday.
He said the party is ready for its October 30/31 convention at the Eagles Square as well as putting all structures in place for a successful 2023 election outing.
“We have just finished our meeting where we received briefings from the Convention Planning/Organising Committee Chairman, the Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, that we are on course”, Tambuwal told pressmen.
“By the grace of God, they have almost concluded every arrangement and plan for a very successful, free and fair convention for the PDP coming up on Oct. 30 and Oct. 31 of this month.
“We are very grateful to the convention planning committee and other sub-committees for the work they are doing.
“We are optimistic that PDP is going to come out more united from this convention and much more ready to provide the desired platform upon which many Nigerians can realise their aspirations.
“We shall continue to deepen our democracy and work together as democrats for greater Nigeria,” he added.
As earlier reported by Naija News, the meeting was held at the Akwa Ibom State governor’s lodge in Abuja and comes barely 10 days to the PDP convention.
Meanwhile, Senator Samuel Anyawu, a former federal lawmaker and national secretary consensus candidate of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) has said that a mass defection of chieftains and members of the All Progressive Congress(APC) to the PDP will occur in coming weeks.
Anyanwu revealed this after he obtained nomination forms at the party’s national secretariat and stated that what is left for this to take place is for him to emerge as the secretary of the party.
He went ahead to state that the moment certain persons hear he is the new national secretary they would immediately move camp to PDP and this would mostly happen in Imo state.
