2019: PDP Approves Port Harcourt For National Convention

The National Executive Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has approved Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, as the venue for its national convention, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan confirmed this in Abuja on Saturday, adding that all the aspirants have agreed to the decision.
Earlier, some presidential aspirants were said to have opposed the party’s decision to hold the convention in Rivers State.
Following the controversy, the state governor, Nyesom Wike, threatened to teach the party a lesson if the convention was moved.
According to him, during its national meeting, no presidential aspirant opposed Port Harcourt as a venue.
He also stated that Rivers will not support any desperate PDP presidential aspirant who is sabotaging the economy of the state, adding that such persons should forget about its support during and after the national convention.
Wike made the comments on Wednesday, during a consultative visit by the Gombe State Governor who is also a presidential aspirant, Dr Ibrahim Dankwambo, at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
The exercise has been scheduled for October 5 and 6, to elect a presidential candidate for the 2019 general elections.
