Dr Goodluck Jonathan has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has become a reference point as Nigeria moves toward another election.
He said, “Ours is a party with an indelible history and proven record on its tradition and we have been consistent in standing firm.
“PDP is the only party that from the beginning, we have not changed our name or our identity in any form, we do not change based on election cycle. PDP is the only stable party in Nigeria.”
“Today is a unique day because we are going to elect leaders that will steer the activities of the party for the next general elections and we charge those that will win the election today to carry everybody along,” he said.
Jonathan commended the outgoing National Caretaker Committee for its leadership and doggedness, adding that it has provided energetic and purposeful leadership at a very critical and trying period in the party’s political history.
