2015: PDP Rules Out Automatic Tickets For NASS Members by unuane1(m): 1:09pm On Jan 07, 2014
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday said it would not offer automatic tickets to its incumbent National Assembly members in 2015 despite the spate of defections from its fold.

“There will be nothing like automatic tickets for anyone; incumbents and challengers seeking the PDP ticket must go through the normal process to secure it,’’ the PDP Chairman, Zone 3 of Kaduna State, Mr. Joseph Gumbari, told the News Agency of Nigeria.

Recent reports had quoted some federal lawmakers as insisting on automatic tickets for the 2015 race to stop them from joining others that defected to the rival Alliance for Progressives Change (APC).

NAN reports that the ruling PDP has lost five governors, some key leaders and 37 House of Representatives members to the APC in the wave of defections that hit the party.

But Gumbari, a former member of the House of Representatives, told NAN in Jos that conceding to the demand for automatic would “kill the PDP.”

“No one can blackmail the PDP into making such concessions; we shall give the party’s tickets to only those who deserve it. Those who have performed and are still popular should have nothing to fear.

“There are many law makers today that cannot visit their constituencies for fear that they could be attacked by their constituents.

“Such people have abandoned the people and had offered nothing to better their lots. You cannot impose such people on the electorate because that will endanger our chances,’’ he said.

He expressed surprise at the lawmakers’ demand, instead of working to popularise the party.

Gumbari said that PDP’s tickets would only be given to members that had been consistent in shoring up its image and strengthening it through effective representation.

The simple truth;

“No one can blackmail the PDP into making such concessions; we shall give the party’s tickets to only those who deserve it. Those who have performed and are still popular should have nothing to fear.

“There are many law makers today that cannot visit their constituencies for fear that they could be attacked by their constituents.

“Such people have abandoned the people and had offered nothing to better their lots. You cannot impose such people on the electorate because that will endanger our chances,’’ he said.

He expressed surprise at the lawmakers’ demand, instead of working to popularise the party.

Jona boy is ready to write his name in the sand of time in this country.


The message is clear "SEAT UP OR GET SET ASIDE".

He knows this will not go down well with some of the members so this is the time to know who is who and who is where after that he can bundle them up and pour cold water on them like he has done to Obj grin grin grin

God will use Nigerians against your enemy just watch how it unfolds.

Is that why some people ask questions like this:1, madam do you have fried rice instruments instead ingredient.
2, Bros, do you have stocks jean instead of stock jean.

No one talks about automatic ticket in a true democracy where vote counts. Most of these law makers have done next to nothing and we are wondering why they should be asking for automatic return to the house. They need to go through primaries in their party if indeed there is anything to show for the 4 years of representing their people.

Whether automatic or no automatic, PDP members knows how to rig themselves into corridors of power. Do non National Assembly members (they are one of the highest paid in whole world) have the millions to compete in bribing their way into getting the ticket? The PDP have failed us and need to be voted out of office. My problem is that their strongest challenger, the APC is an old wine in a brand new bottle. They are birds of the same feathers, who are only interested in milking the country dry at the detriment of the impoverished masses. May God help Nigeria.
