PDP will emerge stronger from National Convention says Jonathan


Former President Goodluck Jonathan has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will become solid  after the successfully  conclusion  of the December 9 National Convention.

Addressing journalists after a visit to the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike at the Government House Port Harcourt on Sunday, Former President Goodluck Jonathan said that an elected National  Working Committee will set in motion  the preparation for the 2019 General Elections.

He said: “God willing, we will go through the National Convention and the party will become solid.

“You  know we have a Caretaker Committee.  When  you have a Caretaker Committee, you are not as strong as a fully elected chairman.  The party passed through some challenges.  Luckily for us, we have  passed through  that phase with the pronouncement of the Supreme Court “.

“We want to formally elect the officials  of the party that will lead  the party to the 2019 elections.  I am very hopeful that on the 9th of December we will elect our leaders “.

Commenting on the performance of Governor Wike, the Former President described  him as one of Nigeria’s best in terms of projects delivery and policies.

He said: “He is one of the best governors in terms of commitment, in terms of putting structures on ground, in terms of coming up with creative policies.

“He met certain structures, he has improved  on them and he has built new  roads and infrastructure.  I was even asked to come and commission one of the roads. That is why people call him Mr Projects. He has been accepted by Nigerians as a performing governor “.

The Former President thanked Governor Wike and the Rivers State Executive Council  for attending  the funeral of his brother-in-law at Okrika.
