PDP national convention will meet Nigerians’ expectations — Gov. Fintiri

Governor of Sokoto State, Ahmadu Fintiri has said the upcoming elective national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be one of the best.

He said it will meet the expectations of Nigerians and lead the party to victory in 2023.

Fintiri, who is the Chairman of the PDP National Convention Organising Committee stated this on Friday at the inauguration of the committee in the nation’s capital, Abuja

He said the committee was aware of the task ahead, knowing what Nigerians, especially the youth, were expecting from PDP.

“With the calibre of the people that make up this committee, I stand tall to be proud that this convention is going to be a successful one and one of the best.

“We are in an extraordinary time, and we expect to have an extraordinary national working committee after this convention.

“This is what Nigerians are expecting from us so that it will be a takeoff point for this party going into the 2023 election,” Fintiri said.

He said it was not the first time PDP would be having such a convention, neither was it the first time he would be heading such a committee for the party.

“I have steered and conducted one of the toughest conventions in Kogi Governorship election and I came out smooth.

“I know by the grace of God, that we’re going to have one of the best conventions and all of the best national working committee.”

Fintiri, who commended the present leadership of PDP for increasing the number of the party governors in the last general elections, said that by 2023, PDP would have not less than 28 governors and presidents.

He urged the party’s national convention zoning committee to conclude its assignment latest by end of next week for the organising committee to start its job.

The governor said that committee needed to round up its job so that those interested in contesting could start campaigning.

Speaking in an interview with newsmen after the inauguration ceremony, Fintiri said there was no basis to shift the Oct. 30 date fixed for the convention.
