PDP Governors working on achieving consensus candidate – Tambuwal
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum has indicated that it is aiming to establish a consensus candidate for all elected positions at the party’s national convention on Saturday.
This was stated by the Forum’s Chairman, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State while addressing media at the end of the major opposition’s governors’ meeting in Abuja on Thursday night.
Tambuwal said that consensus candidates for elective positions were created at a rate of at least 80%.
“We held the meeting of the PDP governors’ forum and as you can see, all of us attended.
“Chairman of the convention committee brought us up to the speed on how prepared they are for us to hold our convention starting from Friday, Oct. 29 through to Saturday.
“We are also happy to say that part of what we discussed was the process of arriving at a consensus during the convention.
“So far, we can say that with certainty that we have achieved not less than 80% of that process and it is still ongoing.
“We are hoping that at the end of the day, we are going to have a hitch-free convention and possibly have all the candidates emerge via consensus.
“Consensus is part of the democratic process and we are imbibing that in the interest of our party so that we can continue to have the stability that will reposition the party as we have always said for the future,” NAN quoted him as saying.
