2019: PDP Denies Endorsing Presidential Aspirant
The Peoples Democratic Party has denied reports that its leaders have endorsed one of its presidential aspirants as candidate for the 2019 elections.
The party made the denial on Monday in a statement issued by its National Organising Secretary, Austin Akobundu in Abuja.
He said the reports were formulated to create confusion in the party, adding that the party’s ticket is open to all aspirants.
He explained that at no time did leadership or any group in the party endorse any aspirant for the presidential election, saying nothing could be farther from the truth.
“It is calculated to create confusion,” Akobundu said and reminded Nigerians that the Uche Secondus led-National Working Committee of the party had repeatedly made it clear that party congresses would be free, fair and transparent.
According to him, the re-branded PDP has no room for impunity and imposition of candidates.
He explained that the transparent primaries conducted in Ekiti state in May is a testimony to the fact that PDP is determined to pursue a rule-driven processes.
