PDP – We will produce 30 governors in 2019 election: PDP

Most recognised opposition party, Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) yesterday boasted of getting 30 governors in 2019 general election.

The party is presently controlling 11 states, which are, Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi, Delta, Akwa-Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Rivers, Ekiti, Gombe and Taraba States.

One of the party spokeswoman said this when a governorship aspirant from Anambra state, Alex Obiogbolu, picked the party governorship and expres­sion of interest forms at the cost of N6 million as against N11 million.

Speaking at the occasion, the Spokesman of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said, “This party belong to Nige­rians and we want to have 30 governors in 2019.

Explaining why the party reduced its governorship forms, which were sold in 2015 and in the past Edo and Ondo gubernatorial elections for 11 million, Ad­eyeye said that the gesture is to encourage large partici­pation as the party is now in the opposition. “Before now, the nomination fee was N10 million and expression of interest N1 million, but we have reduced it. We decided to start with Anambra, not because Anambra is poor, but, we recognise the fact that we are now in the op­position and we want to en­courage more participation so that aspirants can use the remaining money for cam­paign.

Abdu Ningi, who is pres­ently the Organising Sec­retary, pointed out that the governors that have gov­erned Anambra came cour­tesy of PDP, adding that this is the time for PDP to take over the state.

Ningi said that other parties are only following the footstep of PDP, urging those, who left the party during and before the crisis to come back as the door is still open for them.
