Ten governorship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, this morning at a meeting at the Makurdi residence of Professor David Ker, rejected the purported endorsement of a particular aspirant and submitted a short list of three out of which they would accept a candidate.
Beside Professor Ker who is the chairman of the Forum of Minda Governorship Aspirants, others who took the decision included Chief Dr Samuel Ortom, Dr Eugene Aliegba, Mr Hingah Biem, Engr Felix Atume, Engr David Nongo, and Dr James Mbachiantim.
Others were Mr Andy Uwouku, Mr Alex Adum and Dr Gabriel Nyitse.
But they did not disclose the names of those they had chosen and left immediately to communicate their decision to Governor Gabriel Suswam in Government House.
They also rejected the decision of the Governor to select only one person to vote for delegates in each of the 23 local government areas of the state.
Nineteen aspirants are vying to fly the party’s ticket in next year’s election.
The primaries are billed to take place at the Aper Aku Stadium in Makurdi today (8th December, 2014).
