Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the electoral act amendment.
In a statement on Tuesday, Ike Abonyi, media aide to the PDP chairman, quoted Secondus as saying this when he received Atahiru Bafarawa, former governor of Sokoto, and Ibrahim Dankwambo, governor of Gombe – both presidential aspirants.
The aspirants were at the Legacy House, the national campaign office of the party, to pick the party’s nomination and expression of interest forms.
The PDP chairman said there should be no delay in signing the new electoral act because it would deepen the electoral system and ensure faster growth of the country’s democracy.
Secondus assured all the aspirants that the primary elections would be free, fair and transparent where the decision of the delegates would prevail.
He appealed to all the aspirants to work in harmony in the interest of the party and ensure its victory in 2019
“Let me assure all aspirants of our party that the era of impunity or imposition is over in the party as a rebranded PDP, under my watch, would ensure transparency and fairness to all,” he said.
“We must not forget to put the will of God in all we do, bearing in mind that nobody gets power unless as designed and approved by God.
“We are proud of all our aspirants, all of them are eminently qualified to rule this country.“
