Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said the Peoples Democratic Party will become solid after its national convention on December 9.
Jonathan said this in an interview with newsmen after his visit to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, in Port Harcourt, on Sunday.
What he said:
He said, “God willing, we will go through the convention and the party will become solid. Now, we have the National Caretaker Committee and when you are a caretaker you are not as strong as an elected chairman.
“You know the party just went through challenges, luckily we passed the challenges through the pronouncement of the Supreme Court.
“Now we want to formerly elect the national officials of the party that will lead us to the 2019 elections.”
Jonathan also described Wike as one of the best governors.
“He is one of the best governors in terms of commitment and putting structures on the ground. I have always said that for you to say you are doing well as a governor you must add value to whatever you met on the ground.
“He met certain structures and he improved on them. He has build roads and other infrastructure.
“He even invited me to inaugurate one of the roads and bridges during the state’s anniversary. That is why people call him Mr. Project.”
