Coming barely four days after Chairman of PDP Board of Trustees, BoT, Chief Tony Anenih canvassed for automatic ticket for President Jonathan to contest the 2015 presidential election, it seems the PDP are building the necessary mechanism required to ensure that President Jonathan emerges as the consensus candidate uncontested, this is because the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, yesterday, warned that to avoid distractions as the party prepares for 2015 presidential election, it was prepared to wield the big stick against any erring member.

Tukur said that failure of PDP in the past to strictly enforce its laws for whipping non-conforming members into line had accounted for the frequent breakdown of confidence among members on one hand and the troubles with the leadership on the other hand.

He added that party discipline and supremacy were also parts of the major foundation upon which PDP was built.

He noted that enforcing discipline in PDP was now a task for the present National Working Committee, NWC, saying the party would no longer tolerate any acts of indiscipline and sabotage.

According to him, the party was tired of reports of anti-party activities being levelled against members in some states, adding that henceforth, he will not hesitate to invoke relevant sections of PDP’s constitution against those he termed errant members if only to maintain discipline within its fold.

How the members would take this new development is yet to be determined as it seems like the PDP are fighting a war on many fronts both internal and external.
