PDP picks governorship candidates nationwide – LIVE UPDATES

President Goodluck Jonathan [Right].

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is today conducting its primary elections nationwide to elect governorship candidates that would fly its flag in the February 2015 elections.

As usual, PREMIUMT TIMES correspondents have been dispatched to the various election centres across Nigeria to bring you live updates of the primaries.

Based on current permutations, the contest is expected to be fierce in Rivers, Lagos, Nasarawa, Plateau, Ogun, Taraba, Imo, Kaduna and Akwa Ibom States because of the political gladiators angling to pick the party’s tickets in the states.

However, primaries will not hold in Edo, Ekiti, Osun, Ondo, Anambra, Bayelsa and Kogi states because there will be no election in those states in 2015. The serving governors were elected at different times over the past four years.

    Please O, nobody wants to publish anything i send here. But why now? I am not a Jihadist, please. All i just want to say is my own mind on Nigeria. We must not allow this PDP Lagos governorship primary to become a religious matter. Let us look at character, knowledge and honesty. That is all i want to say. I am not a born-again Christian or a Muslim Jihadist. I drink a lot.

      Shut up, drunkard. Premium Times Editors are top rate and first class.
      They are doing the right thing by shutting out all prejudicial comments.
      When a voting process is ongoing prejudicial comments can be rejected.
      That’ll be correct journalism but only if your rejected comment was prejudicial.

      • Willpower

        IS THIS ONE PREJUDICIAL TOO?

        “We will never pick Musliu Obanikoro; we will never return to Babylon.”
        We will do what the electorate want. We will never, never, never pick him.

        We will not vote for him, never. The PDP leadership has agreed that it
        would not subject the people of Lagos State to that kind of impunity again”.

        ………Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe

    Wike’s victory has made it easy for APC to win Rivers. I am loving this. It’s time for our brother from the riverine to govern Rivers state. Ride on Peterside…No shaking!

    • ovieimoni

      Yes this is such injustice but Riverine people do not have the numbers to match upland people. And the Ogonis with their 4 LGA’s will feel slighted the Magnus Abe didn’t the APC ticket, so they will default to voting for fellow uplanders. Wike will win, but it is not fair.

    A Lagos State governorship aspirant, Mr. Babatunde Gbadamosi, popularly known as BOG,
    caused a stir at the Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party governorship primary when he
    arrived the (primary election) venue in a bulletproof vest.

    Gbadamosi, while addressing journalists at the venue, said he wore the vest in order to protect
    himself from being hit by a stray bullet following the violence that erupted earlier in the day.

  • Daniel Dalon

    And news just in. PDP has handed the governorship of plateau to APC on a
    gigantic platter of gold. APC might even win a landslide in the
    presidential election. The gorvernor’s favorite candidate, a Berom like
    the governor, has been crowned the candidate of PDP. Beroms are the
    largest tribe in Plateau, but we expect the remaining smaller minority
    tribes to gang up against PDP and deliver sweeping victory to APC.

  • Ola Onanugaola

    Lagos PDP wonder and magic: 806 Accredited delegates = 863 Votes.

    Governor’s forum election : 17 is more than 19.

    Ekiti State house of Dis-“assembly” = 7 is more than 19.

    PDP: Poverty to D People!!!!

    Naija I dey laugh oooo.
