PDP Convention: Mark Jacob denies $10,000 inducement

*Misleading story will make PDP more popular with the people

By Olajide Fashikun

Former Attorney General of Kaduna State, Barrister Mark Jacob Nzamah, has vehemently denied the reported distribution of $10,000 meant to have been distributed as a media of influencing delegates to the last Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) elective convention where Prince Uche Secondus emerged as the national chairman.

Speaking exclusively in reaction to the reports in the media about the allegation which is viral that each delegate collected $10,000 to deliver Secondus, Barrister Mark Jacob Nzamah said, “I don’t know if others collected but I did not collect. That allegation is not true. Imagine each delegate collecting that amount of money. I believe strongly it is the figment of the imagination of the writers or some persons who have some axe to grind with the PDP.”

“It is sad that our media thrives in throwing tantrums and banters that sometimes borders around the ridiculous. As a delegate to the election, I was a very active player in the entire process, there was no such monies. I also asked some other delegates from my state and other states that I know no one has confirmed any such monies.”

“The most important fact remains that the PDP is on the road to a fresh future. We are destined to greater glory. So, the fear of the party by outsiders may be the reason why such stories are strategically planted in the media to make us look unpopular.

The former President of the Handball Federation of Nigeria (HFN) said, “by the grace of God, we shall return to power in 2019 to take the nation to a new beginning. This kind of stories will make us more popular with the masses. Nigerians are smarter and much more knowledgeable. I wish them luck.”
