PDP Chairmanship:Governors,Others To Accept Election Result

State governors on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)and other stakeholders on Monday resolved to work with any candidate that emerged as the party’s national chairman during the December 9 convention.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Bayelsa State Governor, Francis Agbo, said the decision was reached at the meeting of the PDP governors on Sunday, in Enugu.

Also, speaking shortly after the meeting, the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, said the decision was taken to protect the party’s interest above other considerations and conduct a free, fair, transparent and credible convention.

The Ekiti governor called on the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC)to conduct the forthcoming Anambra governorship election in a free and fair manner “that will not only be credible but seen as credible and acceptable by all.”

He said, “We have what it takes to take over Anambra State because we have worked hard to deserve the victory. We urge INEC to ensure that the Anambra election is credible and acceptable…”

Also speaking on the outcome of the meeting, Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State renewed his call for a level-playing field for all PDP chairmanship aspirants.

He commended his fellow governors and other stakeholders for their efforts at repositioning the party for a successful outing in 2019.
