Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called for a review of the number of statutory delegates to the primaries of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Jonathan, making the call while receiving a delegation of PDP former state Houses of Assembly members at his Abuja residence, regards the modality for the election of PDP officials as a major challenge facing the party.
The former president advocated that top political office holders, such as governors, ministers, lawmakers at all levels should be automatic statutory delegates to PDP primaries.
He, however, objects any arrangement that will empower any PDP leader to influence the number of statutory delegates.
He said, “That is the area we have not been able to manage properly and it is still creating problem for us.
“I believe the next constitution amendment should advocate that area to be properly examined.
“From my own experience, if that area is strengthened, the party will be okay and nobody will complain at the end of primaries. If you lose, you lose gallantly and you support the person that wins.”
