The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-South, said it would partner other leadership of the party in other zones to produce credible candidate for 2019 presidential election.
National Vice Chairman of the party, South-South, Mr Emmanuel Ogigi, however, assured that emergence of the candidate would follow democratic process as stipulated in PDP Constitution.
He told NAN that the zone would support the efforts of the National Working Committee to reposition the party for victory in the 2019 general elections.
Ogidi expressed confidence in the NWC “to organise free and fair primaries in selecting candidates for all positions in the elections”.
The chieftain urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to take urgent measures to ensure the credibility of the voter register ahead of the elections.
He condemned the registration of under-age voters in parts of the country and the participation of such voters in the recent council polls in Kano state.
Ogidi accused INEC of conniving with some politicians to perpetrate the illegality of the under-age voter registration.
He also called on Buhari to give assent to the Electoral Act recently amended by the National Assembly, saying that when made a law, it would reduce tension in the polity.
