PDP Govs' Parley on Consensus Chairman Deadlocked”

"If you play that game (disqualification of candidates based on pending EFCC case), that will be playing into the hands of the government in such a way that every one of us can be charged to court so that PDP will have no candidate", Chairman, National Caretaker Committee of PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, said in Kaduna while playing host to one of the aspirants, Gbenga Daniel, at the weekend.

The meeting which started about 7 pm was held for five hours behind closed doors.

Enugu - The 11 Governors of Peoples Democratic (PDP) are in a close door meeting in Enugu with the eight national chairmanship aspirants of the party ahead of the December 9 national convention of the party.

"A convention that will represent the word Democracy and serve as a template for other parties ".

"We put PDP first and PDP is first".

"We believe we will take over Anambra if the election is free, fair and credible. We are leaving Enugu believing that we will take power at the centre in 2019".

"Nigeria is of age to conduct election that is acceptable internationally", he said.

In the place of a consensus, the meeting presided over by the Chairman of PDP Governors' Forum and Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose extracted a commitment from the aspirants to support whoever finally emerges as the party's chairman at the convention.

The meeting was well attended by the governors of Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Abia, Ebonyi, and Ekiti states.
