The Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum, Governor Aminu Tambuwal, noted this while briefing newsmen after their meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.
He affirmed that the party was ready to provide avenue upon which many Nigeria citizens could realise their aspiration.
“We have just finished our meeting where we received briefings from the Convention Planning/Organising Committee Chairman, the Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, that we are on course,
“And by the grace of God, they have almost concluded every arrangement and plan for a very successful, free and fair convention for the PDP coming up on October 30 and 31 of this month.
“We are very grateful to the convention planning committee and other sub-committees for the work they are doing.
“We are optimistic that PDP is going to come out more united from this convention and much more ready to provide the desired platform upon which many Nigerians can realise their aspirations.
“We shall continue to deepen our democracy and work together as democrats for greater Nigeria,” Tambuwal said.
He also said that the work for the convention was in progress for PDP to have a successful and peaceful convention.
Responding the questions on presence of the north consensus candidate for PDP National Chairman, Iyorcha Ayu, and the National Secretary aspirant, Samuel Anyanwu, at the venue of the meeting, Tambuwal stated that they came for private discussions and not for endorsement.
“They came for a private discussion with one or two governors. They had their private discussions and left,” he explained.
