Governor of Adamawa State and Convention Planning Organising Chairman, Ahmadu Fintiri, has revealed that nomination forms for the various offices in the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP will be on sale from Monday next week.
Speaking after a meeting of the committee in Abuja, Fintiri disclosed that the Eagles Square has been secured for the convention while the Old Parade Ground, Area 10, will serve for accreditation.
He stated that the convention planning committee is working with the October 30/31 dates in mind.
“We expect that sales of forms will commence on Monday and we also expect that the screening committee should also commence and conclude their work on or before the end of next week so that those who are vying, will go about and do their campaign,” Fintiri said.
“The venue has been secured, that is the Eagle square and it is ours on that day, 30th and 31st. We have equally secured the Area 10 Old Parade Ground which will serve the purpose of accreditation.
“We are urging the accreditation committee to work on using these venues in liaison with the transport committee so that the transport committee will work with the appropriate transport companies to secure vehicles for members that will be accredited and conveyed from the Old Parade Ground to the Eagles square.”
The convention planning committee chairman stated that his committee is currently working on budget to have an hitch-free convention.
“We have received budgets from all the sub-committees and we are in the process of streamlining the budget because there are areas the submissions are conflicting. We are all working to achieve one convention which is the 2021 convention.
“As soon as we finish this meeting, we shall approve the budgets based on the availability of funds and early next week, precisely Monday and Tuesday, some of the committees will start receiving their budgets support so that they can start their work in earnest for us to have a successful convention,” he stated.
