FORMER Minister of Education, Professor Tunde Adeniran, on Monday, picked the nomination form to contest the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
Speaking after the event, the former Ambassador to Germany, said his “commitment to reposition the party towards greatness and redirect it in actualising the dreams of the founding fathers” informed his decision to seek the mandate of the delegates to the national convention.
According to him: “I want to assure all our party members and Nigerians at large that my venture into the chairmanship position of our great party has no other motive than to reposition, rebrand and put the party on the path of greatness. As a founding member, who has remained with the party in thick and thin and served in various frontline capacities, I possess the fortitude and experience to help the party achieve its objectives.”
The Professor of Political Science who picked the nomination form in the presence of party stakeholders and prominent stalwarts, including Honourable Oke Olusola Babatunde from Ekiti State, Honourable Oluwole Oke from Kwara State, Mr Chinedum Ekeh from Abia State, and Honourable Temitope Atte from Kogi State, urged the delegates and leaders of the party to entrust him with the responsibility of being the National Chairman in order to ensure its rebirth and the enthronement of good governance in the country.
