2019: Saraki explains why PDP agreed to hold National Convention in Port Harcourt
Senate President and a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Bukola Saraki, has confirmed that he was okay with the choice of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, as venue for the party’s national convention.
“We all agreed to hold it in Port Harcourt.
“Where tempers flared, people apologised and everyone felt, yes there was a commitment to assure everybody that there will be free and fair primaries,” Saraki said.
Some aspirants had complained that the convention could be hijacked by Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike.
