The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Convention Organising Committee says arrangements have been concluded for a hitch free convention on Saturday.

David Mark, chairman of the committee said in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Paul Mumeh, gave the assurance while addressing members of the committee of the Convention in Abuja on Friday.

A former President of the Senate, Mr Mark gave the assurance that the exercise would be smooth and transparent, urging members of the committee to carry out credible exercise, saying “you must be absolutely transparent.

“If you have any interest or bias for any of the aspirants, you can excuse yourself from this assignment.”

Mr Mark maintained that the stage was set for a hitch-free programme as all logistics, materials and security had put in place. “We are prepared for the exercise, virtually all our delegates have arrived Abuja,” he said.

“The PDP has an array of eminently qualified persons to rule Nigeria. We carried out due diligence during our screening. I am confident that whoever emerges from the convention will reflect the wishes of our party”.

Mr Mark and his committee members also inspected the facilities at the Velodrome, Moshood Abiola stadium, Abuja, venue of the convention.

The party is expected to elect its flag bearer for the 2023 presidential election on Saturday.
