2015: PDP cancels presidential primary
« on: September 21, 2014, 08:03:47 AM »

Following the adoption of President Goodluck Jonathan as sole candidate for the coming presidential election, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said it will not hold the presidential primary slated for December 6.

With the development, the ruling party said it would only ratify Jonathan?s candidature on December 6.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Olisa Metuh, who disclosed this to Punch said the party would during the convention, approve the resolution made by the NEC members.

Recall that NEC had on Thursday announced the President as the sole candidate of the party for the election.

Metuh said, ?There is difference between convention and primary. What we are going to have on December 6 at the convention is to ratify the decision taken at NEC.

?There will be no primary again because we already have a candidate and what we will do is that delegates will just ratify him?.

With this arrangement, only President Jonathan is expected to pay the sum of N22m, which the party has fixed as nomination fee for its presidential aspirants.

Governorship aspirants are to pay N11million while senators are to pay N4m, Reps, N2 million and State House of Assembly aspirants, N1m.
