PDP presidential candidate to emerge Oct. 6

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has slated October 5 and 6, 2018, for presidential primaries where the party’s candidate for the 2019 general elections would emerge.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement last night said the party’s governorship primaries across the states of the federation would hold on September 26, 2018.


“Our presidential primary and National Convention still hold on Friday, October 5 to Saturday, October 6, 2018, as earlier scheduled.


“This will be preceded by senatorial primary on Friday, September 28, while House of Representatives primary will hold on Sunday, September 30, 2018. The party has also approved Tuesday, October 2, 2018, for House of Assembly primaries across the states of the federation.


“This clarification is sequel to enquiries from the public and vast majority of Nigerians who are now rallying on the platform of our repositioned PDP to vote out the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) and return our nation to the path of national cohesion and economic prosperity, come 2019,” the party said.
