2015: Why PDP NEC is silent on automatic ticket for Jonathan

- Admin

FRESH facts have emerged why the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was last Thursday silent at its National Executive Committee, NEC, on planned moves to amend the constitution to pave the way for President Goodluck Jonathan to have automatic ticket towards 2015 election.

A motion was to be moved to allow for the President and governors on the ticket of the party serving the first term in office the right of first refusal to the party’s ticket for a second term.

 

The proposal which would have scaled through only to be ratified at the August 31, Special Convention, was jettisoned at the last meeting following advice by members of the Board of Trustees, BoT, and also from meetings held last Wednesday. It was also gathered that members argued that since the convention was designed for the election of members of National Working Committee, NWC, the PDP decided to suspend such volatile issues which included the amendment of the constitution.

 

According to a source, since it was expected that the 62nd NEC meeting would be stormy, raising it will further aggravate the PDP crisis.

A source told Vanguard that at meetings before last Thursday NEC, members argued that there was no need amending the constitution for the purpose, adding that it was resolved that 2015 was still far and other teething problems of the party should be resolved at the moment.
