2015: Jonathan To Declare Ambition After PDP Mid-Term Convention
The long awaited declaration of President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2015 presidential election may have been scheduled to take place after the mid-term convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a source said.
The mid-term national convention billed to hold in the last week of May will however not be an elective convention, but it would be used to pass a vote of confidence on the NWC and ratify Muazu’s selection as national chairman.
It was also gathered that the ongoing zonal rallies of the PDP would be rounded off with the midterm convention.
The rallies at the zones and the mid-convention are being used to sensitise the people for the eventual declaration of the president for the presidential election.”
According to the source, “It is after the PDP midterm national convention that President Goodluck Jonathan will officially declare to contest for the 2015 presidential election.
Ahead of the president’s declaration, the party is believed to be making frantic moves to reconcile aggrieved members, including five of its governors, who defected to All Progressives Congress last year.
The national chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, on Thursday met with the suspended national secretary, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Patricia Etteh, behind closed doors.
The meeting it was gathered was part of efforts to achieve a final resolution of the crisis rocking the party before its midterm.
The meeting with the former governor of Osun State and the ex-speaker was, apparently, meant to persuade them and other stakeholders in the South-west to return to the party and fully participate in its affairs at all levels in the march towards next year’s general elections.
