The party also resolved that the national convention of the party where the presidential candidate would emerge would hold in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.

Recall that the governors had in their communique on Monday resolved to have an all-inclusive meeting with all the PDP Presidential aspirants, with the National Chairman, two national officers of the party, as well as leaders of the party in both chambers of the National Assembly in attendance.

A source at the meeting yesterday told journalists that the governors resolved that all the aspirants should head for primaries, in the spirit of fairness and equity.

“The governors disagreed with the issue of consensus. They said that all the aspirants should go for the primaries to avoid unforeseen development. They want a contest among the aspirant so that the best can emerge,” he said.

On the issue of the convention, the source said that Enugu, Akwa Ibom, and Rivers states were suggested, but the first two were dismissed due to what he called accommodation logistics.

He added, “The issue of where to hold the convention came up. Enugu, Akwa Ibom and Rivers states were suggested, but Rivers state was selected. Enugu and Akwa Ibom were discarded because there are no enough hotels to accommodate the people that will come to the convention. The Rivers States has enough accommodation, that was why it was selected.”
