The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has given President Goodluck Jonathan and other aspirants of the party a seven-day ultimatum to buy their forms of intent, if they must stand for election or the party’s primaries.
This was disclosed by Olisa Metuh, National Publicity Secretary of the party after members of the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party met in Abuja, on Wednesday.
In a similar vein, Metuh debunked that the NWC declined to sell the presidential form to a Niger Delta group who claimed it wanted to buy it for the president. The group had expressed regret that despite its willingness to pay N22 million fee, it was denied. “We are not aware of it. We have not been informed of any group that wants to buy form for Mr. President. We are not yet aware. I am just hearing it for the first time, groups have come to purchase forms for senators and governors. I don’t think that the NWC is against anybody coming to purchase form for the President,’’ Metuh explained.
