No More Automatic Tickets For Governors, Senators, Reps – PDP by catchfun: 3:54pm On Nov 04, 2015
The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in its attempt to dissuade money bags from funding the party has affirmed that there will be no mre automatic ticket for serving Senators, Governors and House of Representatives members.
DAILY POST recalls that the party under the former chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu had in the March/April general elections granted automatic tickets to the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan and its serving governors who were seeking re-election.
The PDP’s acting chairman, Prince Uche Secondus while speaking with newsmen at the party’s national secretariat shortly after receiving the country’s director of International Republican Institute, IRI, in Abuja said there would be no automatic ticket under his watch as could be seen in Kogi and Bayelsa where the two serving governors seeking re-election; Governors Idris Wada and Seriake Dickson, went through the normal routine of party primaries.
According to Secondus, there is no provision for automatic ticket in the constitution of the party and as such, it is implementing what he termed zero expenses primary elections which is part of the reformation which would eliminate the influence of “money bags who tend to manipulate the party activities with their resources.”
Secondus observed that though the party had gone wrong in the past but under his watch, few individuals would not be allowed to fund and hijack it, adding that members should do their biometric registration and pay their dues as the funds generated will be used to run the activities of the party.
He urged the new chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC,Professor Yakubu to conduct transparent, free and fair elections in Kogi and Bayelsa governorship polls slated for November 21 and December 5.
“There will be no automatic ticket for anybody under my watch. There will be no influence of money bags. Zero expenses primary election is key and we are doing that; we have conducted the best primary elections in Kogi, we have also done it in Bayelsa.
“We are eliminating the issue of money bags funding the party; we are returning the party to the ordinary man on the street. With the biometric registration and renewed commitment to pay dues, members will have the right to ask questions for proper accountability,” he said

Thought they claimed all tickets of their opposition were issued @ bourdillon !

Like it's lack of internal democracy that concerns nigerians.

TonyeBarcanistan please help with an epistle to drive home the fact that Nigerians got tired of them cos all their goats turned ajebo (epic omenka copyright) & almost devoured all the yam in the national barn..

Now we have someone who will tie up the goat if it doesn't wean itself of yams & get back to eating grass!

PDP are fast learners. Automatic ticket palava made them an opposition party today. They could have won if GEJ had stepped down for someone else. Some of us only managed to vote apc because we were tired of GEJ, we never trusted Buhari. And see now, e be like say Nigeria don enter one chance. God help us

PDP speaking with the two sides of its mouth....no more automatic ticket for governors yet it gave same to Dickson of Bayelsa and Wada Idris of Kogi despite uncomplimentary achievements of these seating governors.

They should tell that to the birds.

No more money to share from the centre and state.

The states are becoming fewer and fewer and the centre is off limits, so they've resorted to the right thing they should have done from the get-go.

All they needed in the past was the word from the president (or wife as the case may be) and voila, you are selected.

All you had to be was a minister and you had the senatorial ticket in your pocket.

Are those undemocratic days truly gone?

I've got to LOL to this.
