Governors of states controlled by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have pledged their support for a free-and-fair National Convention of the party on December 9.
Gombe governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, made the assurance on behalf of the governors at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party in Abuja.
He said that party members were up and doing for the success of the convention, adding that there was a need for party leaders to sit up and earn more respect from the members.
“PDP governors are solidly working with the National Caretaker Committee and all relevant stakeholders to ensure a free-fair, and successful convention,” he said.
Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, commended all aspirants for conducting themselves rightly ahead of the exercise.
He advised managers of the convention to realise that the success of the party was dependent on its outcome.
Ekweremadu said that if the process was free and fair, the aspirants would peacefully accept the results even when they have lost.
He, however, warned aspirants against making trouble after losing, saying “you may just be the victim.”
