Ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries, former Senate President, Senator David Mark, has called on party supporters to ensure a peaceful process.
Mark, who is the Chairman of the PDP 2023 National Convention Organising Committee, urged party faithful to imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship to ensure peaceful conduct of the exercises.
This is contained in a statement by his Media Adviser, Paul Mumeh, on Wednesday in Minna.
Mark urged party faithful to comply with the party’s guidelines for the primaries.
“The party has clear guidelines and rules for the exercises. Every aspirant should be guided by the processes. The party will not compromise any of the rules.”
He urged the various delegates to consider the integrity and past accomplishments of aspirants, to make informed choices of candidates for the elections.
The former Minister for Communications assured all aspirants of a level-playing field, adding that whoever emerged from the open and transparent elections must be the choice of the people.
He, however, urged aspirants and their supporters alike to refrain from combative or inflammatory statements to avoid unnecessary provocation.
