They also denied the rumours that the president is supporting an aspirant of another political party.
Rising from a meeting in Iyin Ekiti under the banner of Ekiti Central Senatorial PDP Leaders Forum on Sunday night, they pledged to unite for the party’s success.
They said “winning the 2014 governorship election is a task that is achievable if all members of the party work together.”
Former Commissioner in the state Teaching Service Commission, Chief Femi Balogun, said the meeting, which will now be held fortnightly, was aimed at fostering greater unity among the party members in the senatorial district in particular and the state in general.
Balogun, who presided over the meeting, urged party leaders in the senatorial district to eschew sentiment and work towards presenting a credible candidate for the party.
Also speaking, the National Patron of the PDP National Youth Vanguard, Ambassador Gbenga Olofin, said party members should bear in mind that the party’s flag-bearer in the 2014 election will emerge through primary election.
He said: “Our leaders at the national level are not going to impose anyone on us. We are the ones that will choose our governorship candidate and we must make sure that we choose a candidate that no one can rubbish in terms of credibility.”
Former state lawmaker Ajibade Owolabi dispelled rumours that President Jonathan was planning to support a candidate of another party. “From what we were told in the meeting that we held in Abuja a few days ago, Mr President is solidly behind us,” he said.
