Politics No Automatic Second Term Ticket for PDP Governors- Tukur

Bamanga Tukur, National Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday informed PDP lawmakers that there was no such thing as automatic second term ticket for lawmakers, he however urged the lawmakers to keep supporting the President Goodluck Jonathan administration.

Tukur said, “One thing I can assure you is that there won’t be automatic ticket for any member seeking elective positions. I will ensure free and fair primaries so that the party can present the best candidates in 2015.

“If in the course of conducting primaries, someone has to dictate who gets what; that is no democracy.

The lawmakers on their own part urged the PDP Chairman to stick to the provisions of the PDP constitution before taking any disciplinary action, especially suspension of members. They decried the recent abuse of the party’s constitution by the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) and arbitrary suspension of members.
