PDP says President Jonathan MUST buy N22m intent form by Oct. 30

President Goodluck Jonathan

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that all aspirants from the party to elective offices in 2015, including President Goodluck Jonathan, must purchase their forms of intent latest by October 30.

The party said that all aspirants, including those angling to become President, governors, senators and others must show interest in the race by purchasing forms before they could stand for election or the party's primaries.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, stated this while speaking with journalists on the outcome of the meeting of the members of the National Working Committee of the party in Abuja on Wednesday.

Speaking specifically on whether the President needed to pick form despite the fact that he had been adopted as the sole candidate of the party, Metuh said "the constitution of the party stipulates that there will be a national convention, where decisions or memos from the National Executives will either be approved or rejected and there is no way that you can go to a presidential election and say you are adopting or electing someone who has not bought the form."

"The 30th of October for purchase of forms will not be extended and it is applicable to all candidates. That date and time would not be changed." he said.
