PDP presidential primaries: Aspirants fault P-Harcourt venue

ABUJA— Ahead of October 6 presidential convention of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, slated for Port Harcourt, some aspirants are against the use of the Rivers State capital for the all-important event.

The aspirants, Vanguard gathered, are not comfortable with Port Harcourt and are demanding an alternative venue.

It would be recalled that last Thursday, when the PDP governors and National Working Committee, NWC, of the party held a meeting with the aspirants, the governors had picked Port Harcourt, ditching Enugu and Akwa Ibom, on the excuse that Port Harcourt had more hotel space than the two states.


In that meeting, which held at Ekiti State Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja, the governors had also kicked against consensus option, preferring the use of primary election to pick the flag bearer.

It was further gathered that in the meeting, one of the aspirants, Atiku Abubakar, had questioned the rationale behind the choice of Port Harcourt.

A source close to the PDP Governors’ Forum and the aspirants said that the aspirants were holding out for a different venue.

“They are asking for a different venue. Among the venues being considered are Lagos, Delta and Akwa Ibom,’’ the source said.

The 13 presidential aspirants vying for the PDP presidential ticket include former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar; Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal; Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo; Senate President, Bukola Saraki; former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido; hisbKaduna state counterpart, Ahmed Makarfi; and a former Special Duties Minister, Tanimu Turaki.

Others include former President of the Senate, David Mark; a former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso; ex- governor of Sokoto state, Attahiru Bafarawa; a former Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang; ex-lawmaker, Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed and Stanley Osifo.

If Wike gets his way, Tambuwal will emerge the party flagbearer. He already has the party chairman in his pocket. He has invested too much in the party so na to begin reap.

Which Bayelsa?

Ikeja Local Government alone has more than 3 times the total number of hotels in Bayelsa State.

Besides, if they use Bayelsa, where would they get girls that they'll use in taking care of the delegates?

APC also moved their presidential primary venue to Lagos from Abuja because Bola Tinubu was then the arrowhead of the APC. So PDP moving theirs also to Rivers state is no problem for me because as at today, Wike is the financial backbone of the party.

'Credible candidate' should not be used in the same sentence with 'PDP'.

In PDP, the greater your criminal record, the more you are respected.

I don't mind if the venue is moved to the Moon but they should pick an indomitable flag bearer that can disgrace and defeat the catastrophic calamity we have as president. Buhari is not a normal president

Not a fan of any of the candidates but as an outsider looking in, Saraki has a better chance of winning the general election than any other candidate.

Saraki is from Kwara ( middle belt), he can resonate well with voters on SE and SS and also Northern states.

But the likes of Kwankwaso, Bafarawa, Tambuwal etc will do very bad with voters in SE, SS and middle belt.
