Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is now in a closed door meeting with the caretaker national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ahmed Makarfi, at the national headquarters of the Party in Abuja.
He said, "PDP is the only party in this country".
Hon. Musa Bubakari Kamale, a chieftain of the APC and Director General of Marwa Organisation said Atiku's credential does not pose any threat to the ruling APC, insisting that Atiku only came a distant third behind Kwankwaso, during the APC presidential primary in Lagos on 2014.
Meanwhile, the PDP has said there is no concession for the former APC presidential aspirant or any other persons coming in to the party.
Ibrahim Waziri, a senior member of Buhari Campaign Organisation, says Atiku's allegation that APC was notorious for undemocratic practices were false.
"PDP is the only party in this country".
The Publicity Secretary of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, confirmed the planned visit by Atiku.
However, things took a dramatic turn when less than 24 hours after the purported endorsement, a youth group under the auspices of Northern Youths Politicians of Concerned PDP Like-Minds, dissociated itself from the stand of the elders, stating it was no business of the north to determine who emerged chairman since the position had been zoned to the South.
He subsequently went upstairs to the office of the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee (NCC), of the party Senator Ahmed Makarfi, for a meeting before returning to NEC Hall for a formal reception. Whatever aspiration he or anyone coming to the PDP may have, they are free to pursue them, so are other PDP members who are free to pursue whatever political aspirations they may have.
"PDP men and women are free to pursue whatever aspirations they have. The party members reserve the right to give mandate to anyone they wish to give their mandate to", he said.
The chairman of the Convention Planning Committee, who is also the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, gave an assurance that the "electoral process will be free, fair and credible".
Asked of the fate of the party in the event of failure of the South-West to get the chairmanship position, the source said there was no doubt the PDP would be weakened, saying exodus of big shots out of the party should not been ruled out.
He urged the party members to "run away" from act that may negatively affect the convention.
"I will not expect any aspirant, especially presidential aspirants to bring their campaign posters, campaigners, men or women to the venue because it will not be allowed". What we want are people who can help us win elections and Atiku is one of them.
"I believe there will be an appropriate convention for that".
