The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has identified manipulation as one of the major problems of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Ekweremadu, who has thrown his weight behind Ali Modu Sheriff-led PDP, is optimistic that the party would be victorious in 2019, because of the new national chairman. He gave the assurance when he received a delegation of PDP from Adamawa state led by its Chairman Joel Madaki at the Party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Tuesday. “I have assured all stakeholders that congresses and convention will not be as it used to be. “Now, the people will decide their leaders. The days when someone will sit down in his house and name party executives are over. People will decide who will be their leaders. “Our problem has always been that of manipulation, but that is all over,” Ekweremadu said.
