Former President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday delivered the best speech at the PDP convention in Port Harcourt with his fatherly advice to all the presidential aspirants of the party and to delegates to summon the courage to put Nigeria first.
The former president, who was the last person to speak before voting commenced at the PDP presidential convention in Port Harcourt, challenged delegates on the need to put Nigeria first and select the best among the aspirants.
He urged party members to present a formidable candidate that can defeat the APC in the forthcoming presidential election, just as he commended the spirit of sportsmanship among the aspirants for electing to support whoever emerged as the party’s standard bearer.
He said, “We are here because 12 people just spoken to us, one of them will be the next president of Nigeria. I can say that they are eminently qualified to lead this country but we are going to select one of them, the next president, and the person that can bring Nigeria together.”
“Let us have Nigeria first and other things will follow.”
“PDP is clearly the party to take over power. I have had discussions with all the aspirants and they all agreed that only one of them can emerge. I thank them for their commitment to support whosoever emerges”.
He expressed hope in the party with the return of both Saraki and Dogara to the party. Both Saraki and Dogara had initially defected to the APC until their recent return to the PDP.
