2019: PDP speaks on presidential ticket for Atiku, other defectors

Unread postby Wsj » Sun Jan 14, 2018 10:17 am

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has stated that the likes of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and other politicians who either defected to its fold recently or planning to do so, will be allowed to contest its 2019 presidential ticket.

According to the main opposition party, its constitution made it possible to accommodate the defectors as it fights to take back power from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019.

Atiku dumped the APC for the PDP shortly before the former ruling party held its elective national convention on December 9 and 10 in Abuja.

It is believed that Atiku would soon declare his intention as soon as the party roles out its programmes.

National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, who spoke with Punch in Abuja, said that all the new entrants and old members of the party would be allowed to test their popularity during the party’s primaries.

He said, “We are not closing our doors to new entrants who want to contest the party ’s presidential ticket. Our doors are open to them.

“We have amended our constitution to take care of their interest as well as those of other members . We are looking for credible people to fly our ticket in 2019.

“We have amended the constitution , which has now reduced the years that defectors can stay in the party before contesting election from two years to just six months.”
