2019: Makarfi, Atiku, Dankwambo Split PDP
Sun, 24 Jun 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

Unless leading opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) and other critical stakeholders especially in the North where the presidential slot is zoned to, are able to make the right choice among leading presidential aspirants, the forthcoming electoral contest for the incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari, may just be a stroll in the park, Sunday INDEPENDENT exclusively gathered.

The trio of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, Governor of Gombe, Ibrahim Hassan Dakwambo and ex-governor and former senator, Ahmed Makarfi, are leading contenders for the party ticket with each meeting all or mostly part of criteria sought by stakeholders as qualities needed in the ideal party candidate. But with Senator Makarfi’s last week Sunday’s declaration to contest the presidential election under the banner of PDP, the already muddied water of intra party electoral challenge took a new dimension as it further confirmed an earlier speculation that has been ongoing within the party and critical stakeholders who are committed to removing Buhari in 2019.

As learnt, opposition elements made up, chiefly, of highly dissatisfied former heads of state and elder statesmen on the one hand and PDP leadership had itemised criteria for choosing the ideal candidate to back. The criteria were predicated on Buhari administration’s perceived weaknesses.

To wit, the ideal candidate must first and foremost be a crowd puller without having any corruption blemish. This point is meant to substantially counterbalance Buhari’s much vaunted integrity and also split his support base made up of people fanatically supporting him in the core north. Secondly, the ideal candidate must not have the markings of a divisive president. This, principally, is believed to be Buhari’s major Achilles heels. What, with his comments, especially outside the shores of the country, his principal appointments that appear to favour just one section of the country and one of the major two religious divides in the country, the length and breadth of the country is seething with hate and divisive rhetoric. Even more, the perception is believed by many analysts to be at the heart of the wave of insecurity and deep distrust between the citizens and security agencies in the country.

Oshiomhole As Consensus Candidate Meant To Heal Wounds ‘Buhari
Sun, 24 Jun 2018

ABUJA – President Muhammadu Buhari has said the idea behind adopting a consensus candidate as chairman of the party was meant to heal aggrieved members of the party.

Buhari who was delivering his speech at the Eagle Square, Abuja, venue of the national convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) said this while acknowledging some of the discrepancies which characterized the election of leaders of the party at the ward, local and state levels.

He expressed optimism that the party would emerge stronger after the national convention.

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”36″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

Also, the national convention of the party has changed its slogan from ‘Change’ to ‘Progress’ following an announcement by one of the Master of Ceremonies that the delegates should no longer chorus ‘change’ anytime the name of the party is chanted, according to Vanguard Online

The president urged the delegates to continue keeping faith with the APC, even as he enjoined them to accept the outcome of the 42 elective positions open for contest.

“The adoption of consensus as a first option is commendable and the process has led to a lot of healing and cohesion across the states and the zones, and where elections are inevitable, I have been assured that the process adopted will result in clear and undisputed results. Again I am appealing to all contestants to keep faith with the party, “the President stated.
