The presidential aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party and former Senate President Senator David Mark has said the party would not disintegrate after its presidential primary.
He said those who believed there would be upheavals in the PDP after the primary would be disappointed at the appropriate time.
enator boasted that instead of some people’s negative expectations and predictions, the party would emerge stronger and more united after the primary.
He also expressed confidence that the winner of the presidential primary would enjoy the support of other aspirants.
Addressing journalists at the party secretariat in Minna, the Niger State capital, Mark said aspirants seeking the presidential ticket have absolute confidence and faith in the party leadership in providing free, fair, credible and transparent primary.
He said “Nigerians need to stop presuming that there will always be problem. It is a presumption on the part of onlookers, not the participants, that there will be chaos. Those outside are the ones presuming that it is going to be explosive, but it will be free and fair. We the aspirants have every confidence in the party structure and hierarchy that they will organise a very free, fair, credible and transparent primary.
“So do not bother too much; I think we are over-reacting. PDP will have a very healthy primary and we have decided that the rest of us will unite solidly behind whoever emerges as the candidate. Whatever problem may emerge, we will resolve it among ourselves and come out stronger.”
Addressing the party delegates, Mark urged them to vote for the best aspirant, while promising that he would ensure that PDP does not disintegrate if he becomes the president.
