The major opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will today head into a presidential primary which would determine its success, or otherwise, in the 2019 general election.

While governors of the party and over 3,619 delegates are poised to decide the fate of the aspirants seeking to fly the party’s flag in the contest, the aspirants, it was gathered, have refused to step down for one another heading into the contest.

The delegates are expected to converge on Port Harcourt, Rivers State, to begin the process of electing their party’s candidate ahead of the 2019 presidential election.

The aspirants in the race for the presidential ticket of the PDP are; former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, senate President Bukola Saraki, Sokoto state Governor Aminu Tambuwal; Gombe state Governor Ibrahim Dankwabo; former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido; former governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarfi; a former minister of special duties and inter-governmental affairs, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, and a former senator, Dr Baba Datti Ahmed.

Others are a former Senate president, David Mark; a former governor of Kano state, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso; a former governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, and former Plateau State governor, Senator Jonah Jang.

Indications show that the race remains tight as none of the aspirants, at the time of filing this report, had officially withdrawn from the contest.

LEADERSHIP Weekend gathered that the aspirants were still bent on contesting for the position even as moves were being made to prune the number at the last minute. Some party sources told our correspondent that the race might not easily be narrowed down to any set of aspirants as the governors are yet to agree on a particular aspirant. Some of the influential governors, it was learnt, are still rooting for certain aspirants.

Besides the bloc of governors, the bloc of senators, comprising some former governors who wield some influence in their states, are angling to be in the fore of how the candidate will emerge.

It was also learnt that the influence of non-PDP members, especially the bloc of retired generals, leaders from the geo-political zones like the Niger Delta elders, Northern Elders Forum, Ohaneze Ndigbo and Afenifere, is also coming to bear on how the candidate might emerge.
