PDP on the move!!!!!!!!

Following the release of the 2015 election timetable by the Independent National Electoral Commission, permutations on how the presidential candidates of the various political parties will emerge have begun.

As a result, it was learnt that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party might meet next week to discuss the timetable and workout modalities for its primaries.

Investigations revealed that the opposition All Progressives Congress was still grappling with the challenges of membership registration and, as such, it had yet to work out modalities for its primaries.

It was learnt that the scramble for the Presidency was largely responsible for the conflict in both the ruling PDP and the opposition APC.

The situation in the PDP became public owing to the agitations of the seven aggrieved governors of the party.

Five out of the seven have defected to the APC after it became apparent that President Goodluck Jonathan was unwilling to accede to their request not to seek re-election in 2015.

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, said, “The INEC timetable is part of the democratic process. PDP is a law-abiding party; we are guided by the procedure for the electoral process.

“We will participate fully in the entire process. Our job is to sensitise the various organs of our party to mobilise themselves and hold rallies for the election.”

However, the case in the opposition APC is still at the level of conjecture.
