PDP Holds Elective National Convention In December


LAGOS SEPTEMBER 4TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Barring any last minute change of plans, t?he Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)? will organise an elective national convention in December, ?where new leaders of the party will emerge.
Credible sources within the PDP told our correspondent ?yesterday that the convention would be held in Abuja, early December.
?One of the sources, a former minister, said the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee is hastening up the processes that would lead to the convention.
“Yes, I can confirm to you in confidence that we are willing to once again converge in Abuja, in early December to elect new leaders of our party. “We expect the next leadership ?to lead us to victory in 2019. So, the elective convention will be a test case for the PDP.?
“We believe that the caretaker committee is working relentlessly to organise the convention and hand over because there is no time. In politics, 2019 is like next week,” he said.
?Our correspondent gathered that while the tenure of the Makarfi-led caretaker committee is to expire on December 16, 2017, the convention is to be held few days before the expiration of its tenure.
The aspirants for the office of chairman and other officers were already gearing up to contest the seats.
