PDP Makes U-Turn, Releases Statement On Its Latest 2019 Presidential Candidate, Sets The Record Straight

The National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has said that the purported nomination of the Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, as the Presidential candidate of the party, was not true.

Secondus made this known while briefing Newsmen in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital, after a rally of the party.

Post-Nigeria recalls that there were suggestions that some PDP Governors were rooting for Dankwambo as their preferred Presidential candidate for 2019.

He stated that even though he was not in attendance at the Gombe meeting, no such decision was taken by PDP Governors and other party Leaders in attendance.

On why himself and the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, did not attend the Gombe meeting where the alleged endorsement was sealed, Secondus said he was indisposed, and that it was not only the Rivers Governor that was absent.

“Though I was not in the Gombe meeting, it was false, do not listen to APC false propaganda. There was no such nomination. I was not in attendance, because I went for medicals, I am a human being; most Governors were absent, not only my Governor”, he said.
