Atiku Wins With 1532 Votes - PDP Presidential Primaries Results

Sokoto State governor and Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) Aminu Tambuwal on Saturday said only a candidate that understands the complexities of the country can deliver it from challenges.

Officials said at least 4,000 delegates from the 36 states and the capital Abuja were expected to vote at the PDP primaries in the oil hub of Port Harcourt, in the heartland of the Niger delta, in an event due to extend to Sunday.

A few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari received the ticket of the All Progressive Congress (APC) seeking re-election in 2019, the First Lady, Aisha Buhari took to social media to express her displeasure over the "impunity" taking place in the ruling party.

While schemings are still ongoing to woo delegates, it was gathered that both Saraki and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, may have divided delegates from South-east among themselves.

The result was announced by Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, Chairman PDP 2018 special national convention planning committee, at the end of the party's convention on Sunday in Port Harcourt. "It's a victory for all of us".

"We are with you and confident that with us as a team May 29 2019 will be a day that our party will take over".

Mr Dankwambo scored 111 votes at the convention.

"You promised us see security and today I can say to you that no section of the country is under insurgency".

"I need your assurance, support assistance and participant".

In his acceptance speech, Mr Abubakar praised the conduct of the primary as the best since the enthronement of democracy in 1999. I can not do it alone as it is a collective responsibility.

Mr Abubakar, who spoke without a prepared script, commended his challengers, saying they showed "a sense of unity, a sense of objective and a sense of commitment".

Abubakar has already run for the presidency four times. The president has already been declared the APC candidate for the election.
