PDP plans 2-in-1 convention

25 August 2014, 15:07

Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is planning to hold a joint convention that would officially lead to the nomination and selection of its flag bearer for the 2015 presidential election, reports Thisday

The joint convention is expected to serve as the mid-term convention of the party where a vote of confidence would be passed on its National Working Committee (NWC) and to nominate and ratify President Goodluck Jonathan as the presidential candidate of the party.

The planned convention would be tailored along the United States presidential primaries whereby a serving president is usually nominated unopposed.
