The American College football player and coach, Paul Bryant, said “When you make a mistake, there are only three things you should ever do about it: admit it, learn from it, and don’t repeat it.”

Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had admitted it made some mistakes in the way it approached the 2015 presidential election. It paid dearly for it. Has the party learn any lesson? Is the party likely to repeat the same mistake again as it gets set to elect its presidential candidate for the 2019 contest today? It seems only time will tell.

One thing is however certain, and that is, how the 12 presidential aspirants manage their personal ambitions will go a long way to determine the party’s fortune in next year’s presidential contest. And unless the party put its house in order, the fate that will befall it, would certainly be worse than what it suffered in 2015.

Regardless, the stage is now set for its presidential primary. Rivers State is the host. Both the party and the Police in the state have expressed their readiness for the convention.

Though the venue, Amiesimaka Stadium, is on the outskirts of Port Harcourt, the state capital, precisely in Igwuruta-Alli, Ikwerre council of the state, however, some of the popular hotels like Hotel Presidential, Le Meridien, Golden Tulip and Landmark Hotel, all in Port Harcourt city, have since been booked.

Security has also been beefed up in and around these areas, as well as the stadium. As at Thursday, minor work was ongoing at the stadium with security apparatus put in place to check unscrupulous elements.

Special Adviser to the state chairman of the party, Jerry Needam, told Saturday Sun that PDP in the state has made adequate arrangements for a successful national convention. He said the choice of Port Harcourt to host the event was divine and apt, adding that it would afford the delegates the opportunity to see and appreciate the landmark achievements of Governor Nyesom Wike.

“Rivers State is a peaceful and hospitable state. We are ready to host all delegates of the PDP coming for the national convention to elect the presidential candidate of the PDP. Everything has been put in place. It will also afford Nigerians the opportunity to see the good network of roads and other infrastructural development of Governor Nyesom Wike. The choice of Rivers State for the PDP convention is apt and divine. It underscores the peaceful and secure environment of Rivers State. It further underscores the fact that Rivers State is safe and a fertile ground for business.
